Greetings! We have gotten the go-ahead to use river rocks from our site (currently being excavated) to exercise our sweat equity and build our fireplace face in the commmon house. It was originally spec'ed with some fake rock covering. While we are looking forward to this bonding (mortaring?) community experience, there is no one in the group with extensive masonry experience, especially when it comes to using rocks for the fireplace. The actual construction event is a ways off, so I am writing to see if anyone has good ideas for resources (books, people, videos) that might set us on the right track in the meantime, so we can maybe practice and know what to expect. I am thinking as an example of the Foxfire references that showed how to do all sorts of self-sufficiency projects. Thanks for any leads!
