Waiting for the Sun to Rise

It gets too hot by 9am for our setting materials so we get to work as early as possible, which means sunrise.
Everyone keeps telling us 96 degrees is not even hot (for Texas)!

Our first three panels are installed while the wall is still cool and the mortar works best.

It's not as hot out as it will get but it still helps to wet the wall so the moisture in the mortar does not get absorbed immediately.

We will install some of the top row tomorrow so we cut our piece to fit.

We have already started peeling, cleaning out the mortar and replacing any pieces necessary. 

End of day two!
