Heres some pics of my attempt of trying to become a mason.
Beautiful work as usual!!! What kind of stone and how deep was your footer? Not many people understand the amount of back breaking, hands and knees effort that goes into an irregular pattern. You and your crew did a great job! (Gotta give the crew some credit too) Gotta feel good to add that one to your portfolio!
I'm going to venture a guess and say you did pretty well... Looks good.
Nice job. Elaborate pattern must have been a ball buster.
What did you use inside the firepit?
Do you have any control joints cut in the slab and walks?
Whats the bag with the P on it?
Like the tree with the face!!!
Great great work... you keeping busy must be with work like that? keep up the nice work i love seing your work. any pics of your truck??
Wow! Very nice looking job! Does the fire pit have some type of drain in the bottom?
Glad you guys liked it. In the center of the fire pit we layed firebrick with 3/4 stone between and below them. We originally were going to do all 3/4 stone, but we wanted it to be easy to clean the ashes out.
The slab is 4 inch think. We did cut control joints in it. We mortared the stone with portland mortar.
My guys never want to do this type of patio again! But once other people see it, i have a feeling we will do several more of them!
No pics of my truck. Its just a basic reg cab dodge 3/4 ton cummins. Work truck package. No fancy adds on except a weatherguard tool box.
I LOVE it!!! Your joint gaps are beautiful! I personally really love the timeless beauty of natural stone. Really nice work!
Here are some other pics of a small job we just finshed up. This is the 2nd smallest job we have done this year. Walkway in front 8x30 wall in back. Wall will be extended in the spring with big stair case leading to a new pool. At that time back patio will be installed with outdoor kitchen.
We only installed the wall now so they could get there final CO. Normally i would not do a wall in 2 parts.
