STONE & PAVERS

Stone Cold Crazy






ALPHARETTA: What in the world can be do with a bunch of rocks? You'd be surprised. 













This is the old look...plain, nothing especial. We were doing a lot of work on this home and had a great hunch that this portion of the project would look awesome. 










We're removing the old siding getting it ready for all those dumb stones.














We removed the old siding and foam, and installed new plywood, then black roofing paper, then special wire mesh to hold the mortar and stones.











Off we go one stone at a time. Yes, ONE stone at a time. 














      
         Time's three. :) 
         It's still a process.












Let me tell you it looks sharp. Really complements the beautiful deck we installed. 














Look how well it goes with the Tigerwood Decking from TimberTech Decking. 













It looks cozy, and warm like it was intended to do. 

Super Hot Fireplace Stones




ALPHARETTA: We always appreciate inside work and on this particular home we did a LOT of inside and outside work. 











We removed the drywall to install new 2x6's for eaiser and batter placement of the soon to be installed tv mount. We do this to prevent being at the installation mercy of the 2x4 studs.










We also opened the wall to have proper support for the 4x12 rough-sawn cedar mantle. We didn't want exposed support brackets because of our end vision. 










With the pre-work done we commenced the main scope of the project. The mantle is protected. 














BAM!! We installed new stones that will make a refreshing and drastic improvement to this living room. 





















Buh-Bam! In goes the hearth. One beautiful 6' piece stone from the Stone Center of Georgia (Roswell) 























Wrapping up the last details but it's essentially done. 


















  Looks great!!

Our Very Proud Moment

CUMMING: We try to do good business and good work for many good reasons. And what do we get? We get our objective which is to be referred by our clients and we're very thankful when it occurs. 

Here is our referral project. Great homeowners, really, really good people. But, we had to tear this little oasis down to build a new one.






Armando in thought as he's the one leading the project. The clients actually removed all the plants and furniture. 










Here's the pretty much finished project but it's the pics below that demonstrate the process. 












We busted up the concrete that was unusually thick for a patio slab.













And we're off to pouring the new slab. 













             This is certainly a skill....














The slab is poured, pretty much dried and onward to the next step...














                      


                   BAM!!!!
How awesome is this huh? Wood plank stamped concrete. It's not a cheap process but it is a great looking product. The clear coat is still wet but it'll tone down some. 

















the color is Leather - with a semi-gloss clear coat finish.





















Here it is with furniture....looks really nice. 












This was the start....














The framing went up pretty quick...











The knee walls, chimney and roof...











This is the fireplace mantel....I went to PMC Building Supplies for a 4x6 rough-sawn cedar mantle. Walked the warehouse with Joe from PMC Building Supplies, and found our piece way up on a shelf, needed the forklift to bring it down it was so high. 







We went to Stone Center of Georgia to select the knee wall stone caps...they had to match the stones selected by the homeowner.










Here were are at the North Georgia Brick yard getting fire rated bricks and stones for the chimney we're building.














There's the start...











There's the finish....rough-sawn cedar mantel, knew wall cap stones, and fire rated brick for the chimney.










The stone processes start with this corner first....














Stone work is yet another skill....














Looking nice...













Look at this....beautiful















All that's missing is the custom ordered chimney cap....screen in 3-season addition...














       The start from afar....













Looking nice....













    


           Looking Done!!













My corner, my view....
















Making it happen....














Beautiful stone work














BAAAAMMM! look at the ceiling....tongue & groove ceiling, stained. 4x6 rough-sawn cedar beams, recessed lights, ceiling fans (the clients had speakers installed). This looks great





Not Your Steppin' Stone....

Sometimes we're just a lucky bunch! 

We've done some work for this client, in fact we remodeled her bathroom, and she called on us to make her nice front patio just a good bit nicer. 

We stopped here in Roswell to pick up the stone & did our thing from there.

Please call us if you need help.
