    Looks like it may be getting cold there. Hope the weather holds for you.
    The progress is amazing.

      Yes, it is nice to be working with hot lime mortar until it gets cold. =)

    Will there be a certain temperature that you can’t work on the bricks/facade/dormer?

      We will have to stop when the temp stays below freezing for very long. The lime mortar is more forgiving than cement mortar during freezing but we don’t want to push it.

        Some masons think that 40* and below is when you should stop, but putting a salamander on the work can help extend that threshold especially if you tent the work as well. Many masons work like this in the winter. The brickwork looks great. I especially like your rowlock header course sometimes called the shiner course. Its admirable that you are taking the time to replicate what was/is there.

          Thanks. By replicating what is there we know that we are doing it right.
