Wood Stove Stone Wall


A family in Rockville, Virginia wanted to add the beauty and comfort of a wood stove to their home.

(We have to admit that we are personal fans and advocates of having an independent heating source.)

They did much of the leg work, having the flue and chimney installed on the exterior of the house, and gave us the go ahead when they were ready to have the stone wall and hearth installed.






We do our utmost to protect our clients property when working indoors.  
Masonry is certainly a messy trade, but we think it's best if the only long term reminder that we were there is the beauty of the masonry.








  


Safety is not the only benefit of having a stone wall behind a wood stove.  It creates a large area of thermal mass which will help radiate heat into the area long after the fire has gone out.  Plus, we think it's pretty darn beautiful.






The stone selected by the home owners was a MasterCut with an 80/20 mix and  two pieces of Tennessee Sandstone for the hearth.

"Gavin is one of the most professional tradesmen we have ever hired.  We were absolutely thrilled with his work and craftsmanship.  He was on time, on budget, and always in communication.  He took great care in building our stone wall and it is an absolute work of art.  We've worked with a few businesses on our woodstove project and Gavin outshined them all.  He's a true professional.  As well as producing quality work, Gavin and his team went our of their way to make the process as painless as possible.  I wouldn't consider anyone else for furture work."
