Birmingham 2-story Kitchen Addition

This Quarton Lake architectural gem was built merely 8 years ago. The original kitchen never met the homeowner’s needs. As a result they hired MainStreet to design and build a two story addition off of the rear of the home, gaining much needed space in the kitchen and master closet. The highest level of craftsmanship was used to re-work the copper shingled roof and hand glazed true masonry stucco exterior. Finally a blue stone patio with a built-in custom fire pit is surrounded by a stone wall with a 2" thick flamed blue stone coping.

Hi there,
Thank you for your inquiry. This stone came from a local distributor. You should be able to contact a stone distribution company in your area to find something similar. Keep in mind, natural stone has wide variation and every project will look unique.
