Three Arches

Updated: Dec 12, 2021

During the last journal update, the flagstone terrace project was just getting underway. The site was prepped, and the retaining wall supporting the patio and serving as the base of the sitting wall was constructed. Over a hot and muggy late summer (the New Englander in me would call it "wicked hot") the patio was laid, and with the advent of Autumn, the sitting wall is built and heavy capstones set, completing the project.

With the capstones being square, and the wall being curved, the edges are saw cut to match the radius, and "flamed" with a torch to remove the unsightly saw marks.

This was a technical build, and one I hope exemplifies the professional craft of dry stone work.

Magnificent! Each stone placed with solid mastery and perfect harmony. A seamless compliment of useful space and nature's art.
