The relationship of stucco finishes to the house on which they are applied presents many interesting possibilites. Unlike practically all other building materials, stucco is not a series of complete untis fitted together on the job, but is, until the moment of its application, a shapeless flowing mass, capable of endless possibilities. Brick, wood or stone are definite in color and texture. Their appearance in the finished work can be readily judged before they are in place and at the same time offer little latitude after the choice of some particular type has been selected.
