stucco mix for masonry emulation over plywood/mesh


I had to close a gap between my entry door and the top of the openning so I inserted a wooden box intending to make it look as much as the surrounding masonry. I guess the route is to apply some kind of applicable stucco/mortar mix over this wire mesh I applied.

Should I mix my own mix with base ingredients (have experience with doing that for making numerous plaster repairs inside) or is it good to go with a standard ready mix from a big box store?

Anyone else think there should have been tar paper before the wire mesh went on?

Yea....a little paper would be nice.....seeing how stucco is anything but water proof....

Here is what my house looked like prior to stucco being applied.

Nice! Is the bottom (only) window flange over the sticky wrap for drainage?

Yes....if anything, my windows are over flashed.....the window has a nailing flange....flashing installed before the window goes in....then the flange is caulked....then flashing at the bottom...then on the sides...then the top....

When the guys installed the paper...they lifted the top layer of the bottom flashing and put the paper under it.

Water is not going to get in.....
