We're pleased to announce that we've been officially granted the Masonry contract for what was once a Shop Easy on 7th Avenue in Saskatoon. Demolition has already begun with new construction to commence late fall.
For the Masonry portion the owners chose to use a natural limestone including two hand carved limestone pieces, which just so happens to be our specialty. Our Stone Carver, Ryan Watson will carve the property's address, as well as a piece that will note the date of renovation.
This stone facade, along with traditional stone carvings will be sure to compliment the vibrant character of City Parks neighborhood. For past Global News coverage click HERE.
We're getting close to wrapping up this massive chimney at the back of our Tuscan inspired project in Saskatoon's Rosewood community. Soon we'll take it to the indoors, and just in time for the colder November temps. If you missed our last blog on this residence click HERE and be on the look out for more amazing stone details designed by Stone Carver & Masonry Designer, Ryan Watson.
Did you know that Rocco Masons offers Masonry Design Services for both commercial and residential projects including hand carved stone detail? After all, doesn't it makes sense to have an actual Stone Mason design the Masonry on your project?
Our Tuscan Style project in the beautiful community of Rosewood is right on schedule and looking amazing. Next up, the homes interior stone work featuring three stone fireplaces, an arched stone entrance wall that will coincide with the exterior, and a stone island in the kitchen.
Stay tuned for the multiple stone arches that are just being wrapped up at the back of the home. Simply magnificent!
Today we visited the site of a limestone memorial our Stone Carver Ryan Watson hand carved a few years back for his wife's Mother. One of the beauties of using limestone is that it becomes more and more beautiful with age.
You can stand out in the sea of polished granite too! Take some pressure off your loved ones by having us work with you to design your one-of-a-kind headstone BEFORE you're gone!
