I believe we used seven ft. cut limestone of various depths. A fork lift was use to place them starting at the bottom one on top of the other.

Love the exterior wood! Is it reclaimed lumber?

No, we used new western red cedar and painted each piece various colors and then planed each piece before installing. We did not seal the wood after installation and allowed it to take on a grey patina.

Thanks for the info! We had considered western red cedar since it is so hardy. We will be building here in Texas as well and I wondered how the climate would affect the wood. We are in NE Texas and it can be rather humid. Does it seem to be holding up well in the Texas climate? I absolutely love the appearance but we have been concerned ith maintainence.
