Kenny HendrickKenny's Brick-thing

Made With Trash

Dumped in the driveway were two very large dump trailers-full of masonry, concrete, and dirt.     The debris came from a portion of building that was tore down in the town of Springfield.

Of the huge amount of debris were salvaged 2 types of brick; all were solid brick, with the exception of about 100 figure 8 slump brick.

LIMESTONE

Today a mason came by to drop off a load of gravel and concrete trash-fill.   There were only a half-dozen pieces of damaged limestone/sandstone salvaged from the load.
Below you see a piece of irregularly shaped stone that has a couple of dings which can be seen on the top corners.   Underneath is a piece that will be cleaned up and installed also.

This was supposed to be a coat rack
This is a picture that does not belong here

But since we're here, this shows the preferred temperature in here when it's 12 degrees outside.
It's December 19, 2017

This is the view from the right (the longest side).   Shampoo still balancing it in place.
Well it's not the white marble I had hoped to put here, but this is all God had on hand, so it'll have to do.

In case you missed the ding.

Here's another ding

This shows the overhang (front of stone) that would be preferable to have all the way around the lower stone.   However its not possible as the stone is barely as wide as the wall itself.
After I dig out the chops saw and cut the right side of the flat stone (because it's all jagged and damaged also), there will be less overhang than what is seen in the picture below.

Here's the flat stone turned the other way (jagged side to the left and smooth flat side to the right).

The stone cleans easily with a wire sponge. 


This is the backside of my Cat (pondering if the mirror ought to be placed as shown).

The stone pictured here is very heavy.  There's about 8 or 10 more of these pieces but they are smaller than the one pictured. The stone was donated by my nearest neighbors to the north of me. The chest that this stone is resting upon is about 5-foot in length. It will be interesting to see what this rock will polish to. I'd say that the largest piece of cut rock is about 120 pounds or more (probably more). The largest piece of rock will be the piece that the seat will be cut from as one solid rectangle slab. The seat will be 10 inches wide by 33 inches in length. What's left over after the seat is extracted will join the rest of the rock and be installed atop the walls, in the fashio of a capstone (with overhang on both sides of the wall to allow for more things to be safely stored on top of the walls.
 One piece of heavy stone available
  Since the seat for the shower area is only going to be 10 inches deep and 33 inches long, I only applied a preliminary cleaning to the area in which will be needed for now.
This stone is 43 inches in length
This would be a super nice slab of rock if it had a high polish to it.

The rest of the stone
Since the captsones for the entirety of the walls is primarily only going to be 5 or 6 inches wide, it is probable that there will be enough stone to cap it all.

Concrete Splash Guard is poured and read for tripping over

I'm thinking a brick cathedral ceiling with arches (to give the underground affect).    Anyone else out there have any brick they're not using?
