    You are welcome. Follow me as we are going to start planning for an addition on the far side of the lake home. I am hoping to upload plans, sketches and more.

    These walls were built with a skid loader and a couple of guys. The key design elements to these are the size of stones, the fluctuation in height along the wall and the tapering of the walls into the terraces. I ordered 10" to 14" stones, knowing that the load would contain some 8" and some up to 16". I also went to look at the quarry pile so that I knew the color was variegated. The terrace baselines were created with the skid loader first then gabian stone was used to anchor the dirt before the boulders were set in place. Finally, a layer of rich dirt was spread over the top. We planted a shade, sun mix of grass and anchored with soil retention mats. Part of this project could be done by a DIY, but having a seasoned Skid Loader operator, made this project turn out stunning. We used 200 tons of material on this project. This spring we are going to continue this onto the adjacent property and create a patio with a burn pit.

    Hope this helps

    I am so glad you asked this question. I went out on a limb on this with Owens Corning's Presidential series. I mixed three colors together. While this is not recommended by the manufacturer, I just had to try it to get a blending that looked like a natural slate roof. I need to send them a picture of how great it looks.

Or maybe the home blends with and is tied to the ground so that the meeting of structure and land is eased. The home is fixed to its site, rooted in place for all time.Whereas the modernist example speaks to transience, the more traditional design speaks to eternity.

basic paint colors are: Benjamin Moore 1504 darker green/ 1503 Lighter green/ 2134-20 midsummer night for the accent. Red accents are from Pella windows in the loft and Jeld Wen window in all other areas. This red matches Ralph Lauren TH44. I think the stone was Boulder stone. I did not settle for one color, but rather picked two colors and mixed them
