For this outdoor dining area, the client really envisioned a Tuscan paradise where they could relax, converse, and entertain neighbors and guests. Their ask was for an outdoor area that transported them elsewhere, with ample seating, and that brought warmth in every aspect of the design.

Project Overview

As this family had ample space to work with in their background, we were excited from the get-go about the possibilities this would bring. The pièce de résistance of the entire project is the one-of-a-kind veneer stone wood burning outdoor fireplace feature with a flagstone hearth made up of irregular crab orchard grey stone, that extends from the patio to well above the cabana. The fireplace included not only a place for a fire, but also had two other convenient hollowed out pockets for storing wood for future fires. 

All in all, we are beyond thrilled with the final product. We were amazed at how closely the computer rendering matched the final product. We would not hesitate to recommend The Stone Man.”

Catu Family

Along with the fireplace, The Stone Man team installed intricate Belgard Savannah pavers to create added pattern and texture underfoot. To cover the flooring and fireplace and to cap off the seating area, a custom open-air cabana with stained natural wood, tongue and groove ceiling, and posts was constructed. The family is now able to lounge at their leisure, no matter the temperature.
