Cabin restoration: Fireplace and exterior walls

Nothing but great things to say about this down to earth master stonemason. Brian's amazing stonework is a key part of our intensive log cabin restoration on the Niagara Escarpment where he rebuilt our fireplace from scratch to make it look far better than the original (a fire hazard), while preserving the historic character and feeling of our cabin. We prefer an open fireplace and Brian sourced and installed an old heatilator along with interior fans to help drive the heat. Brian's a humble guy and he'd never say it but we think his work is high art – and he brings a deep understanding of stone and mortar to work his magic.

We also commissioned him to build us a series of exterior retaining walls, using local limestone, fieldstone, and granite from the old fireplace. Again, he flawlessly captured the spirit of the past to give character to the new additions to the cabin.

As an independent stonemason, Brian worked well with our contractor and his team and I've since hired Brian to build a series of exterior dry-stack retaining walls, one of which inspired the curvilinear design for the landscape of our entire garden.

For each project, Brian gave us a clear estimate for time and labour and stuck to it. He had particularly good insights in terms of stone choices and quarries to source it. Could not be happier with the high level of work Brian contributed to our country home.

Stone craftsman extraordinaire

Brian's work is magnificent. We did a renovation to create a studio and ended up with a huge amount of natural stone. We decided to make an outdoor kitchen (And a few other things). Brian not only helped design it with us, but dry laid the project for weeks taking a huge amount of care to ensure that it was a one of kind piece that is literally a show stopper. We have not had one person who has come to our home who hasn't told us that it is breathtaking. Brian is fair, honest, a pleasure to deal with and a master craftsman in a world filled with people who just want to get it done. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
