The Hole in the Wall

Naw, not the bar in San Francisco.

Walking around the bar the other day, we noticed a spot in the stucco on the back of the bar that'll be needing repair.  I'm beginning to hate stucco.

Of course, my first thought on seeing the hole was, "Uh, oh.  Is it a problem?"  And it is.  Water and other moisture is getting in and causing the stucco to break away from the building.  ("Crap!")

Next on the list, "How much is it going to cost?"  And I don't know.  I've never repaired stucco before and I have no idea what the associated cost is; I'm hoping no more than a couple hundred dollars.  I guess we chalk this one up to "Cost Over Runs".


  1. stucco patch at any hardware store... 8 bucks follow the directions on box

  2. I hope it's something as inexpensive as that. But I dont' think it will be. Since the stucco is pulling away from the wall like a giant bubble, I think we'll have to break it off (or cut it out) and re-stucco the section.

    Karl's at the bar today putting in fence posts and he's gonna be more closely inspecting the stucco spot and see what the damage is. He's done stucco repair before and we can probably get away with under $100.

    My fingers are crossed.

  3. Does anyone have a rough estimate on the opening of the Phoenix?

  4. I just made a new post addressing the opening date "issue". At this point, I think it'll be Mid-to-late March. But, don't hold me to it. Every other rough estimate I've made has been pushed back by delays beyond my control.
