The Cool Heat of a Greenwich Gray Fireplace

One of our most popular shapes of natural stone veneer is Ledgestone. Our classic New England Fieldstone Boston Blend colors consist of a wide range of grays, whites, tans, browns, pinks, and other neutral colors. When your home decor or personal preference is for a more uniform gray color, consider adding one of our new color options.

Pictured above is a beautiful fireplace featuring the cool gray tones with white striping that you will find in Greenwich Gray Ledgestone Veneer. Sprinkled in are some of the tans, whites, and flat grays of the Boston Blend. This unique mixture adds a different spin on an old favorite.

The work was done by a local mason:

Labor Day

Labor Day - Office Closed
 
Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September (September 6 in 2010).

The first Labor Day in the United States was celebrated on September 5, 1882 in New York City.[1] It became a federal holiday in 1894, when, following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, President Grover Cleveland put reconciliation with the labor movement as a top political priority. Fearing further conflict, legislation making Labor Day a national holiday was rushed through Congress unanimously and signed into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.[2] The September date was chosen as Cleveland was concerned that aligning an American labor holiday with existing international May Day celebrations would stir up negative emotions linked to the Haymarket Affair.[3] All 50 U.S. states have made Labor Day a state holiday.


 
In observance of Labor Day, Stoneyard.com will be closed on Monday Sept 6,2010.  Please have a wonderful holiday weekend - stay safe and keep an eye on the local weather channels for news on hurricane Earl.

Ashlar Oasis

An Ashlar Veneer Project Tour with Babin Landscaping

(Click to watch video)


This beautiful oasis consists of
many elements that work together harmoniously to create an amazing backyard retreat. New England Fieldstone Boston Blend Ashlar Thin and Building Veneer was used extensively throughout the project. Seating was created around a stone lined fire pit complete with Tiki lamp accents throughout the space. A water feature and beach inspired pool was also surrounded with Fieldstone boulders. To finish the space, an outdoor kitchen and grill area is perfect for entertaining and relaxing on a warm summer night.

The front entrance to the home is also accented with Ashlar Veneer. Two columns side the driveway entrance and a round centerpiece was faced as well. Two wrap around stone walls, columns, and stair risers also complete the look up to the front door. To carry the accent throughout the home, the Ashlar Thin Veneer was used to face the exposed cement foundation.

The beautiful work on this project was created by:
