I can surely say that, when finished, it'll look majestic.
Well, at least in my opinion...

Wait Until Spring

Since work on the exterior of the building seems to have stopped, I assume that the plan is to apply the stucco to the outside walls starting next spring. After all, you could not apply stucco and then have the wet plaster freeze since it would crack. Meanwhile, work must be progressing on the interior since it is now completely enclosed.

Hey, Joe Whalen! How is it going?
They have to wait for at least one year to apply the plaster.
This gives the mortar inside the wall enough time to dry out.
Please relax. As a matter of fact - It is Your worrying that keeps
me posting in this threat, I just noticed! Lol I drink to that

Ludolf and others that post pictures seem to be in vacation and all other members
are worried that the build comes to an standstill. (350 People work on the build right now)Therefore, I guess, I have to post pictures here before someone gets a heart attack!
Portal III





Portal IV






Portal V








Northwest corner


Preparations for Gold works


The cupola, btw.: The cupola will be 3/4 empty! What a waste of space!


A new stone, just placed;


And here we see info about Joe`s question: The brick has been covert with "Grundierung" witch is watery stucco to start a bridge between the two martials.
Namely Plaster and brick. It is like the plain paper on the wall under the wallpaper to keep it all together! In that case the wall and the wallpaper, basically the same idea.

Thanks

Thanks to Eagle and others regarding how the stucco process works. I really do appreciate learning the reason behind the wait time between finishing the brick work and applying the stucco. Sorry, if I seem to be to impatient to see this beauty completed.

By the way, the recent photos of the details of the stone work show just how magnificent the new building will be.

Can't thank The Eagle enough for these wonderful photos, brilliant work, giving us all tantalising glimpses of what we can barely guess at on the webcam alone. The quality of the work being done is astonishing, those details leave me ever more excited about the day the scaffolding finally comes down (around which time I'm going to need to book a flight to Berlin! )

Thanks too for the information regarding the process of applying the stucco, most enlightening!

Hello everyone!

Can one remember this:



It now looks like this:


The angel needs his trumpet, still!
This is Portal IV:



Do you see this? Those idiots bend the royal crown!


And now it is probably broken!

Good news! If you'll look at the Ostfassade view of the palace on the Webcam, you'll see that the eastern end of the Südfassade is being stucco'd!

Hello there!

Let me explain how they tackle the Putz/Stucco/Plaster adventure.
Because this wall is thicker than normal, there is a longer wait time before
stucco can be applied. The first step is a thin spray with watery stucco. This has to dry. it is done to help the later stucco to stick/bind to the wall. Same like if you put wallpaper to a bare wall. You have to put paper on first.

The second phase is to make the stucco spray wet and moist. You add a thick layer of stucco. Normally white color added. White is cheap and lets the wall glow.

The third phase (not needed) is to apply a thin third layer of stucco with the desired color already mixed into it. (red, blue, eggshell) The wall is finished. Sometimes the second layer will be left exposed around windows and so on.
The purpose is to save money in the short and long run. In the short run, because the color is so expansive, the savings in only adding a thin layer of colored stucco saves a lot of money. (Small house 1 - 2000$) Also, people can make the wall two colored if parts of white stucco are left exposed. That saves time.
The savings in the long run are that when the weather weathers the wall down, particles will be washed down over time, but the wall remains flawless for years to come. This also creates the patina look that tourists love. In countries with dry climate like Italy, some walls are redone only every 120 years or so.
In Germany up to 80 Years. Paint should be avoided, it can suffocate the walls and will peel and create mildew. Best is lime wash, it breaths, do it yourself and it kills germs (acid). Walls are supposed to heat up during the day, dry out, sterilize germs and mildew dead from heat and dryness. It also releases comfortable warmth into the night when people sit in cafes. It helps create a micro climate. That helps with the heating bill, too.

Now some pictures from phase one. A wet spray:




The stone has been glazed against graffiti;






Phase one: Spry Putz is being applied; therefore the window cover;

The quay with the future promenade is coming;

Thanks, Spreetunnel.

Schluterhof Question

I notice that they have taken down some of the scaffolding in the Schluterhof and that the wall appears to have been finished in a reddish color. From the online photo I can't tell if that is just the brick or the color of the stucco in that courtyard. Does anybody know for sure?
