    Can the French white be filled so it's smooth?

    So is the 24"x16" stone a block stone or a stone tile on stucco. From a profile in another photo, it appears to be thinner than a full block size. If stone tile, how did that affect cost of materials and labor? Also, another post says it was quarried in Florence, TX. Can you tell me which of the three quarries in Florence? Thanks!

    Beautiful work! What type of stone is this? I'm looking for a nice smooth cut stone and really like the look of this.

    It is a custom triangular profile to match the roof slope. The bottom of the gutter is exposed between the rafter tails.

This second example is a subtler design, in which the opening is a size that's similar to the window next to it, without creating any strong contrast between what is carved and what is not. The cladding gives this portion of the house a Lego-like appearance, going hand in hand with the simplified gable geometry. And this gets at what makes carved corners work: When the form can be grasped in its entirety, then the carving is noticeable and can have a greater impact.

The pitch is really high on this so willing to compromise pending degree of difficulty/challenge of build
