As I mentioned here, my husband and I accidentally became non-certified, “not” professional masons. We enjoy a good DIY challenge and laying stone happens to be one of them.
My husband and I developed our mason groove early on. He would load up the stone and concrete bags in the tractor, build the forms and be in charge of mixing the concrete. Works for me!
I on the other hand, would be in charge of pouring the concrete, positioning the stones and cleaning up the joint lines, sweeping etc. Works for him!
Despite the excessive heat, numerous water breaks, and the constant complaining from yours truly- ” I am too hot” ” I can’t possibly do anymore” and my favorite ” Honey, I got sweat in my eyes and I can’t see”, we were able to complete both sets of steps.
This is truly a Mason Marriage made in Heaven!

PS- without this concrete mixer that we purchased years ago, we would have a hard time considering projects like this. One of the best purchases we ever made for mixing up the concrete. Got it at the Home Depot.
