Living Stone Masonry is on the Road again! We are searching far and wide form our usual turf of Boone NC to find the best stone jobs available. Our travels have taken us last weekend to Raleigh NC, and tomorrow we leave for Chattanooga TN, where I was born and raised before moving to the mountains of North Carolina. Last weekend in Raleigh we made amazing progress on a drystone retaining wall we are building with a local weathered granite. By using a combination of large stones set with and excavator and smaller stones set in a rough, semi polygonal pattern, we have been able to build this wall much faster than I thought was possible. The longer my involvement with stonework, the more I appreciate this type of stonework. The natural weathered faces of these stone make an extremely attractive and interesting wall.
