These poured pillars measured 16” square and they merited a very large stone look. Not only were the pillars to be impressive but the pergola was to be fabricated out of 12” by 12” wood beams with 6” by 12” joists. Along with the pergola they also had a daybed, couch, a very large fire place with a pizza rack and decorative counter tops that were finished by Tommy Musto of The decorative iron work for the doors and fire place were provided by the owners brother-in-law John Shepherd owner of All the surrounding areas leading up to the pool and all around the pool are of Butterfield Colors’ Ashler Slate stamps that home owner and his crew used after all the hand carved vertical work was completed. All of the vertical hand carved concrete was carved with Butterfiled Colors Cantera and stained with Butterfields Elements stains.

The future is bright with hand carved vertical concrete and the response so far has been nothing short of amazing.
Not twenty-four hours after the pergola was finished people, complete strangers, were stopping by knocking on the door asking if they could walk through the back yard. This is what we believe to be the first of many projects of this type here in the midwest with a long and prosperous career. In my eleven years of carving rock out of concrete this project is one of the most impressive pieces of work I have ever done.
