This is our first home and although we aren't the most handy around the house, we are up to the challenge in teaching ourselves a few things.
Is this a relatively simple process? I plan on doing some research (obviously) before we go about the project, but is there anything we should know before starting? AKA...how to prepare the surface, what kind of mortar to buy, can it be done at any time of the year (aka temperatures to watch out for)? We live in Southeastern Wisconsin and will be tackling the project in mid-November after we've moved into the house. However, if there's snow on the ground, we'll probably wait until spring. Any harm in waiting a few months?
Thanks so much!
