My Hero

The February Better Homes and Gardens was a great issue.
On the last page they feature Do-It-Yourselfers who send in their projects.
This lady is my hero, for sure.
She re-sided her house with rocks. Look!

(The little print you probably can't read)

If you look at a couple tons of stone veneer as a big jigsaw puzzle with a huge payoff in curb appeal, a re-siding project like this isn't that scary. Before getting to the "fun part." Amy removed the old siding around her Saginaw, Michigan, home's porch and garage, nailed up wire mesh, and applied a skim coat of concrete. "It was very physical work but entirely worth it in the end," she says.
