Here the customer had a basic fireplace and pizza oven design we had general idea to work from, we then designed it to make the pizza oven and the outdoor fireplace each stand out on there own even thought they are side by side. The fire box of the pizza oven was going to be a 36 inch round oven but felt the oven would be to small for a fire and the pizza. it would work but it would be very cramped, so we designed a oven that was rectangle and gradually rounded in until I was able to close the top . This will allow the best of both worlds , one of heating it and the other with the added space of a barrel type oven laid sideways for extra space. the oven will heat like a round oven and the new 1850 degree ceramic blankets will hold the heat in along with the 2 inch thick thermal floor with firebrick on top.
We installed the cast iron door to give it the ideal look with a true bluestone surrounding the opening we ground round the edge and then thermed the edging.
We also therm edged 2 inch true blue stone for the mantels and seating .
We finished off the counter door with a BBQ guys stainless steel door.
We then stained the ashlar stamp we installed with a water stain from proline and sealed the slab and walkways.
Here is a before and after driveway and staircase we did in eldorado stone with chisel edge blue stone steps,with darkened mortar in the blue stone ...we moved the entry staircase stairs forward and added a step at the base of the stairs .
the driveway was done in aqua bric pavers from Willamette graystone.
We saw cut the existing wall and removed the old patio.
We then installed a rock base and re- poured the patio area and new staircase .We then installed the brick and upper block walls for the new water featured ,lower fire pit and seating area, with low lighting under the seat and in the walls and steps.
Celtic wall / drystack retainer wall / Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavers / eldorado stone

We started out with a picture of this area for the sandset paver patio .we then inserted the patio into the picture Before we did the patio...yes..we installed the picture of the patio before we did it. we are one of the few mason companies that can actually let you see what it will look like Before we do it.we can do this with brick stone OR interlocking pavers.
Here we cleaned up the old retainer wall and repaired a huge break in the wall, we then installed eldorado stone with chiseled edge cap stone on top of walls. we also redesigned the staircase and added a new wall that would hold a new iron railing.
We removed the old concrete driveway and installed a rock base compacted then installed the permeable sand pavers from Willamette greystone in a herring bone pattern and ribbon on the boarders. We then installed a new Celtic stone wall from mutual materials on each side of the driveway with cap stones.
we also did the house next door and will be getting new pictures of it when all the plantings are done..It has a radius staircase in the back with saw tooth masonry in wall inside saddle walls on a radius with saddles steps through out the wall with brick paver walkways in herringbone pattern throughout the back yard and side with stone set pavers surrounding a pond. we also install a color concrete broom finish driveway with shadow colorings in the concrete.
We brick veneered this home with some unique ideas.
The home had originally been designed for wood siding with wood blocks installed at the second floor levels.
We removed the wood blocks and designed the masonry to project out far enough to allow for airspace and still support the upper masonry.
We incorporated Combinations of saw tooth and headers and dental block design that really came out nice with a triangle of projected headers and herring bone design in the center on the upper gable areas.

Have a tight area where you want to be able to get down from above to a lower part of your yard but don't have enough room for a straight staircase?..well we can fix those staircase problems in those tight areas.
This Radius staircase allowed for a nice transition down to the new stamp concrete patio area.
the staircase was only 8 feet to the far side , this even allowed for room to walk along the back side of the yard to work on the grape vines without stepping out into the staircase.
The Retainer walls were built i block with the customer planing to rock the surface himself at a later date.
we capped the wall with a mud sill cap,
This wall was poured solid with rebar through out to hold back the dirt.
we poured the footing with the sand finish concrete parameter then poured the stamp concrete and water stained the surface, then finished it off with a acrylic sealer.
Here we started out installing a sand set paver patio, but the ground was clay and would absorb the water, the more rock we installed the more it sunk.
So we installed a rat slab base and mortar set the patio, we use a special technique to keep the patio pavers at a acceptable level so when we lay the pavers they are all smooth to the surface.
we then sanded the surface with a polymer sand that locks into the joints so you don't track sand into your home or have problems with sand blowing out of the joint work while cleaning.

Here we removed the cobble stone in the back ground and kept part of the concrete panel work for the base..we tied it all together with the new concrete base and overlaid the new base with variegated bluestone , this bluestone had a very nice brown vein in it that really set it off . With the tight 3/4 to 1" joint work in a medium black help the blending of the joint work to not set if off to much. we also added the brick bench and tied into the wall where there was once a brick staircase into the flower bed area above. you can see more on this patio by clicking here
