I Love Masonry Contest Feb 2010

Entry #1 24 yr Mason-- IUBAC Local 4

Entry #2 I learned everything from my Grandad. I labored for years for my Grandads company Current Masonry. Finally he let me on the wall. It looked a lot easier than it was to do. My only instructions were make ****'in sure they go in straight and level and if there not take the ****'in thing back out and put them in straight and level. So that's what I did. At the end of the day there was one small wall left to be put in. My Grandad said "I'll show you how to drive in blocks." Twenty-five minutes later the wall was put in. He was 61 at the time.

Entry #3 I've been in the Masonry business for about 10 years now worked my way onto the wall after laboring for 3 or 4 years. nothing beats finishing a nice stone wall!

WINNER!! Entry #4 I sure could use that trowel!! I came across your site looking for info on chimney/fireplace construction for a future project. Thx. Tom

Entry #5 24 year old master mason from Norway.

Entry #6 Arrow Construction products

Entry #7 McDowell Masonry

Entry #8 I lay brick

Entry #9 25 year old mason tender. Have been with my company almost a year. I have some prior experience working with my grandpa for a while until he retired a few years ago. Love this trade!

Entry #10 I am in the process of building a block storage building.

Entry #11 Currently a Bricklayer apprentice for a average size building contractor in England, enjoying every aspect of the building trade, be out of my time in about two years from now. Alright laying bricks at the moment, but not acquired the speed as of yet, but still early days.

Entry #12 I believe it was the first brick job that I had done by my self. I proceeded on about the third course, and then it started to rain. And it rinsed all the mortar out of that third course. O what joy.

Entry #13 I was on a project where the stucco crew had scaffolding set up with a tarp out side of it because of freezing temperatures. It was working just fine until one night the wind blew hard. And they had not tied it to the house. So in the morning when we showed up, there was the scaffolding that once was 20 feet in the air, all laying on the ground. Man I hate it when that happens!!

Entry #14 I'm a 23 year old former carpenter who was brought into a family business. I married the boss's daughter and shortly after that I was on my father-in-laws jobs. I was put on the masonry fast track as far as learning goes and was completely surprised by just how hard this trade was. With strict supervision of the old guys on the job, I'm able to spend time on the wall, and learn new things every day. I never thought for even a second that I would be a mason. But my short few years of learning this trade has me hooked. I love this trade. These old guys really humbled me, and taught me a great trade and skill that ill be using for a long time!!!

Entry #15 I was a mason since I was 13 years old because of difficult life my country I have to study and engage in this kind of work and I love it. Thanks 

I want to personally thank all of you for participating in this contest, do come back we will periodically have simalar contests as this one proved to be a success.
