Dan Dan the Stonemason Man; Kickin' Bum and Takin' Names

Me and Dan drinkin' coffee by a halogen lamp.

Dan found yet another use for our slate crates; a little staircase for setting stones higher up!

The side and front of the masonry heater in the middle of the stone-facing process. 
Our thermal mass will be 4"-6" thick slate because it is very locally available, a great material, and we think it looks cool.

This sign is just down the road from our house under construction.  Our house is being built on one end of the slate ridge.
