front patio…

By in Exterior, Patio

So last November I had my front steps redone. They were crumbling apart and very dangerous. A man named Donald Murray II who owns a business called Rockwalls & Creative Stonework in Hopkinton NY did the work for me and the results were excellent! His number is (315) 842-6556. You can see the results here!

This spring I had him come back to fix up the upper patio and top steps as well as the railing bases. Once again the results were excellent! He removed all of the grime off of the stones with an acid bath, then chiseled out the stones that were beyond repair and any loose mortar. He made all new railing bases out of cement and sandstone. Below are some progress photos I took that show the replacement of rotten stones. I’ll post finished photos soon!

    Hi, Adam. I stumbled upon your blog via Door 16. I grew up in Edwards, about 30 miles from Potsdam! My mother runs the Edwards Opera House; you should go check out a show sometime (it’s mostly folk, country, bluegrass, etc). Take care and cool house. Sarah

    Adam, so good to see you back and feeling inspired! I completely understand. I’ve felt that way about my house and it’s inspiring for me, too. Love the new blog look and format. The patio is terrific. Good luck and I look forward to following your blog again. What a good friend you have in Anna…
