Enclosed Workspace

October 10, 2009 was the first snowfall here in Littleton, MA, and now that it is December, I wanted to write a little about cold weather masonry. There is still room for masonry work on the calender.

-Temperature constraint:
Ideal temperature for masonry is 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit, but you can work as low as 40 degrees.

-Solution:
Raise the temperature by enclosing the workspace. Either bring in a heater or open the front door and run the boiler.
