Our dream was to create a fireplace in our home that we have lived in for the past 27 years. We weren’t sure who to contact or where to begin. We reviewed Bill’s website and were impressed with what we saw. After meeting Bill in person we were even more excited to get the project started. We shared our ideas and with his direction the project started. Bill coordinated the stove installer; the plumber, the carpenter and they were all top-notch professionals. Bill’s kindness and professionalism was constant from start to finish. We loved all of those who worked with him. Our fireplace is truly a work of art, and a dream come true. People who walk into our home are mesmerized. The wood burning fireplace with real stones from floor to ceiling are amazing. Bill is a true artist. We would recommend him to everyone!

Earth & Stone Masonry replaced both the front and side steps and both walkways, put stucco on the foundation, and stone at each of the foundation corners of my modest-size brick cape. The stonework is beautiful and it has transformed the exterior appearance of my home. From our very first meeting, it was apparent that Bill enjoys his work and that my project was as important to him as it was to me. He made recommendations and suggestions when what I thought I wanted was not the best way to go either aesthetically or practically for the size and style of my home. The work was done on schedule and there was regular communication on progress. When the stonework was complete, the finishing touch was provided with landscaping which included a small boulder retaining wall. The landscaping was completed with the same care as the stonework and looks great.
Earth & Stone Masonry provides superior quality work by a skilled craftsman.
I’m looking forward to working with Bill on a future project.

Bill is wonderful and his craftsmanship is exceptional! We were in the middle of house repairs in the spring when we realized our 200 year old foundation needed repair; Bill was able to squeeze us into his schedule and he did a great job, even the new mortar matches the old.
Because his work was such good quality, we made him come back and re-build the opening to our home's original 200 year old cooking fireplace and three stone walls around our gardens, that the previous mason did not construct properly.
Hopefully Bill will be back this year for more stone walls and foundation building.

Bill is a true artist when it comes to stonework. He took our vision of the perfect fireplace added his expertise and made it a reality. He and his team are such a pleasure to work with that I wish we had more work for them to do.
They completed the job in a timely manner and all within budget. Additionally, Bill took several precautions to keep our house from getting damaged, while keeping the work area neat and clean. We highly recommend Bill for any masonry or stone design work as he delivers an awesome product and an experience beyond your satisfaction.

My passion for stone – construction started 25 years ago when I built my first wall and continues today in my company, Earth and Stone Masonry. With each project I construct, attention to detail is paramount.
