    Hi Bill,

    Thanks reply. Good luck with the possible big project. We just finished first phase of this huge wall project. Phase 1 was building double walls 4' in height around back of yard. You will notice in one of the pictures us working on the staircase through the 2 walls so the customer can access their little pond below. Phase 2 is 2 more granite bridge block with a patio maybe out of cobbles or antique brick paving block. Next project we head to Brookline, Ma to install curbing and do a driveway in antique brick and cobblestones. Looking forward to that. Here are some pix of the granite project we have been at. That's all for now other than we have been shipping granite block, curb and cobblestones everywhere including Marthas Vineyard.

    Hi Bill,

    Thanks for the reply. No jobs in Martha's Vineyard just shipping the granite there. No installs in NH or ME. We are mostly local in the Cape Ann area north of Boston. I'll have to look at the picture and see which is my mug. Haven't been there in a while.

    Thanks for your interest. Just love building these walls.
