We use a lot of stone in our projects. We find that quality stone work can add so much to the beauty of home. Most of the stone that we use has been salvaged from previous structures for a variety of reasons; from the fact that early structures were built using the first and thus best pickings that were available, to the hand workmanship of previous craftsmen who originally shaped these stones, to the aged patina from decades of exposure to the elements. The stones pictured here were salvaged from a old stone bridge in Pennsylvania. Each was hand shaped, some measuring up to nine feet in length. We used them all on our Moriah project to build the chimneys and landscaping elements.
