2022 current projects
This project started with addressing the boulders on the hill, left from the foundation excavation. The large block shaped stones where lined up along the foot of the hill and filled in with some smaller stones.
The wall in front of this new home is a round fieldstone retaining wall. The wall is constructed in a dry (mortar less) fashion.
GRANITE STEP AND WALKWAY
New walkway done in Katahdin pavers and a granite step. This is an addition to a project done in 2014.
ROCKY POINT, MILTON
New walkway done in Katahdin pavers with cobble stone border, and new granite steps.
This wall was heavily damaged by ice over the past 10 years. The project was re-engineered and approved by the NHDES. The new design permits a 2:1 slope as apposed to the previous permit of a 1:1 slope. The new design also specifies larger/rounder stones to mitigate future ice damage.
This project was started in November '21. This type of work has to be done during draw down of the lake. On 03.21.22 the season began and I started completion of the wall. The project was completed in April.
New/replacement walkway done in Katahdin pavers.
This project includes removing the bottom step, replacing the step with granite, regrading the area as to create a patio area, and installing a natural stone retaining wall with granite steps. The newly regraded area is finished with paving stones.
ROCKY POINT, DEPOT POND:
This waterfront project includes a perched beach, a stone wall, and a stone reinforced slope. The waterfront walls were constructed of old granite, new granite, naturally occurring stones, and wood timbers on top of the new wall.
The project was started in November of 2020, and completed in May of 2021.
The biggest challenge on this project was reach. I fabricated a jib to extend my reach, added a battery powered winch be able to set the stones/granite alone, and fabricated a stone boat for loose materials.
