Everything? Absolutely everything?


I'm wondering if the Méjanes building supplies company really had "tout pour la construction."

They seemed to have run out of plaster partway through this project.

Isn't that a good thing?At least the passer-by gets a glimpse of the building's original stone.

Great photo! I love the contour of the "fault line" between the stucco/cement(?) overlay and the underlying rock.

Plaster probably isn't the right word -- that's what they'd need to get the whatever to stick. I never know what to call it -- stucco, maybe -- in French it's called "crépis" and even has its own verb, "crépir."

Any vocabulary help out there?
