“Stone walls do not a prison make, nor iron bars a cage.” – Richard Lovelace

Our mason will be the first to admit that stone walls aren’t his favorite way to spend the day, but — wow — this looks fantastic.  Between the fireplace/chimney and this stone work, Sam has a big role in the overall aesthetic of Dash Landing and we couldn’t be happier.

You’ll also notice his next project — four big pallets of bluestone were delivered to the site today.  And our fire ring is under construction.  With a little magic and hard work, this is going to turn into an awesome patio…

It’s a “loose” wall, but still really important to seal the top to limit the amount of water getting into the center — especially in the winter.

  1. I love that wall! It’s on my list once the house is done. Beautiful home and stone wall.
