The owners of this property envisioned a masonry house created out of local stone and designed to accommodate passive solar heating during the winter and cooling during the summer. The feature design element of the project was a curved Wilkeson sandstone terrace base of hand faced and dimensioned stone. Throughout the masonry work, the mason added special stones with hammer markings to accent the custom stone work. This curved stone base magnifies the views of the site and provides for a south facing exposure for passive heating. Two pavilions sit atop this base and connect via an entry portal. One pavilion shelters the living areas. The other pavilion features the master bedroom suite. Stone masonry was the perfect material in both the appearance and durability needed to create a house of this scope and anticipated longevity.
