This is my 24th year building and repairing drystone masonry installations. I first of all talk with prospective clients to discuss their project ideas. I also measure & photograph the site and assess a range of site characteristics and materials. Furthermore, I propose a budget. Once a client agrees on a budget, I design imagery of the project or build to an existing drawing. Finally, I assemble a crew of qualified builders specific to each project and build it with them. I am certainly involved in all phases of hands-on construction. All drystone masonry installations I build use best known practices, as quantified by the Dry Stone Walling Association.
