Artistry in Stone and Wood  (Lake Tahoe)

Contractor's License: Masonry C29

Background: Over 40 years of experience since moving to Lake Tahoe in 1978 and starting my own business as an independent contractor some years later. I have worked primarily at Fallen Leaf Lake on a wide range of projects--stone, wood, docks, decks, interior remodels, exterior walls, etc.

Currently: I am looking for some indoor projects to fill a gap before resuming outdoor projects in spring. These would probably fall under the category of stone veneer -- fireplaces, walls, columns, whatever. Please enquire by email and send me your phone number, so I can call you back to discuss your project.

Below are a few pictures of related work I have done.
