    Forget the transfer method, how do they get the self sustaining pile of mortar? I'd love to never mix mortar again. On the other hand they never seem to finish that section they are working on either...

    The video loops at around the 3rd-4th shovel

    Awesome way to do a chinked tile roof...I'm specking this method from now on!
