The contractor cut out the shape in plywood then took it to a stone company to have the stones cut in the shape he wanted.

what would be a ballpark guestimate price to build something like this - just bought a similar style house and love to do something like this....

I can't say how much the furniture cost, but the building itself is pretty expensive because of the materials used. I think it was a little over $100K.

Sorry, this one is not available anywhere for sale. It was custom designed and fabricated on site based on a photo the owner had found in a book.

Many of the furnishings and fixtures were sourced by the client on her various travels, some on trips to Mexico. I wish I could tell you where, but I'm not sure she even remembers.

I wish I could tell you, but it was purchased by the homeowner. She picked up a lot of stuff on a trip to Mexico, so this may have been one of those items.
