FC / PC gate curve1137 viewsThe gate has been sprayed with a papercrete stucco. The mix contains paper, fastwall stucco, lime, and prickly pear cactus juice. The juice provides the lovely light green color. A tirolessa was used to apply this papercrete.

Photo 05978 viewsI this view of the mockup you can see the base plate at the bottom of the pipe that I eventually sunk into concrete with a lot of steel rod and angle chunks welded to it for mechanical adhesion. I don't know who's drink that was or what it was. The step treads are adjusted with 7-1/2" risers and a gentle slope to shed water. The top step will be exactly 7-1/2" below the finished landing-to-be at the site.

gate lath1627 viewsIt took about 30 work hours to install the lath. We used rebar wire and vice grips for the inner areas. At the end I was finally able to twist the wire and snap off the end so nothing would stick out in one smooth motion. We also used hog ties on the edges where the lath and rebar met. The $8 manual hog tie clamper gave me some terrible blisters after three days of usage.
