I am posting a few things i have learned and more questions that were in a couple PM's so that everyone can learn together, suggest by Dr. Dave.
I have talked with RilesJ, Stevereno and Dr. Dave. all have been very helpful. I am now done with my build and have been for a couple weeks, the only thing left is the stucco. I thought i was ready and was going to use the Parex brand that Riles and Steve both used, seems perfect. One issue is the distributor here in Omaha, NE says they don't carry it, even though it's on their website, etc. So now my issue is what "one coat" stucco do i use. Dr. Dave has said just a normal dry mix stucco will work as one coat, i think that's right isn't it Dr? The reason i need it to be the one coat, is i put down tile counter thinking in would only put a 1/4" layer of stucco, if i go with a quick crete brand, it wants you to do a scratch coat too, this will make my stucco too thick.
So my main question is this. If not Parex, because i can't find it around here, what brand can i use and apply one coat? I would really like to mix in the color so i don't have to paint as well. Do you use a dry mix or is there another brand other than parex that's the acrylic type base?
Riles, Steve and Dr you have all been very helpful. And everyone that has seen my new kitchen is envious. I have wanted one for about 10 years, just never got around to doing it. Very glad i did, and the Twin Eagles grill i put in is the best grill ever, i can now cook steaks anyway you want rather than my trade mark of well done! Any suggetions are welcome. I'd like to stucco tomorrow and be done for a football party in a couple weeks.
