Business Description
A continuing theme for our practice of architecture is Big Ideas.....Fine Detail. A core belief at RDM Architecture is that the successful architectural design is an exercise in creative problem solving and finding a common sense solution to fit the needs and aspirations of our clients.

We believe that consideration of a building's relationship with the environment and careful use of energy resources are practices which result in added value for our clients.

They are all Marvin Windows, mostly the Clad Casemaster Series. We've been using Marvin for years and they have become a go-to choice. They have a wide range of windows that can fit different styles and budgets.

It was a Kohler sink that has since been discontinued. This one is similar - http://www.amazon.com/Houzer-CST-1212-1-14-Inch-Stainless-Corner/dp/B0011YLXCS

Something similar to this. I wasn't able to find the exact fixture but it was a paintable ceramic sconce. We've used a lot of different ones over the years. Take a look, they come in all kinds of sizes. http://www.atgstores.com/outdoor-sconces/ameritec-lighting-1544-half-cylinder-ada-outdoor-sconce-with-open-top_g1371105.html&linkloc=cataLogProductItemsImage

The files for that project are in storage and not readily available. I've had a few people ask about it so if I do get into that file I'll be sure to post the color.

That is an older project and the files aren't readily available. Sorry I can't be more help but thanks for looking at our project.

Looked back in the digital file and didn't see it. I'd suggest talking to some local masons and getting some samples. If you've found some pictures of what you like that is even better and gives them a starting point. You'll have better luck with a locally available brick from a cost and a construction standpoint. Good luck in your project.

Try a local mason or local stone yard. The installation is really important with a stone walk like this, especially if you want something that will last. Good luck.

The company is called Arcways. They are located in WI, arcways.com. They did the fabrication of the components and a local contractor (Hurst Constrcution) did the install and finishing. It came in on a truck with another stair on a custom trailer.
