Cravotta had a hand in every detail in this house. Each piece of woodwork and stonework was drawn out and created by skilled artisans. This level of detail in a house was unlike anything that Cravotta had done before. He and his team "were certainly learning and creating as we went along," he said. The jaw-dropping fireplace in the formal living room is an example of the work that went into the construction. With the help of classically trained stone carvers Joseph and Holly Kincannon, Cravotta designed this limestone fireplace, which took a year to complete. The stone was given a unique aged look with olive oil, applied by hand.
