Nothing compares to using real stone, especially when it comes to a home fireplaces. Not only do we use real stone for our fireplace designs, but at Rocco Masons we also incorporate the art of hand carved details, a technique that dates back to the beginning of civilization. This winter our Stone Carver and Masonry Designer, Ryan Watson worked on Designing and Carving three Indiana limestone fireplaces; one for this homes main floor as seen in today's YouTube video, another for the master suite, and of course a third for the homes MAN CAVE.
Today's video shows the strength it took to install our 500 pound hand carved limestone mantel. As you will see things got intense for a second, but nothing our crew couldn't handle.
Last year we started and finished the Masonry work on this homes exterior as shown below, and in last years blog's here: ROCKIN' IN ROSEWOOD and here: GRANDE CHIMNEY.

Today's blog contains a time lapse video of our Stone Carver, Ryan Watson working on the centre Art Deco detail for his latest fireplace design. That's right - along with Stone Carving, Rocco Masons offers Masonry Design Services to our commercial and residential clients. After all, you wouldn't hire a landscape architect to design your homes interior would you? So it only makes sense to get a Stone Mason with twenty years of experience in the trade, to not only fabricate and install your Masonry, but to Design it as well!
