Outdoor Fireplace with Long Lasting Charm

Posted February 7th, 2012 by Albaugh Masonry Stone and Tile Inc. and filed in Fireplaces, Uncategorized

This outdoor fireplace was created by Scott and Greg Albaugh.   The inspiration was the cozy walled in court yard that needed something.  The owner was open minded yet wanted it to be very attractive when looking at it from the inside.  Notice the herringbone pattern in the firebox and the inset in the brick.  Those are all details that read huge in looking at this fireplace.  The hearth is nice and wide to allow more people to gather around the heat source.   The fireplace was drawn by Scott Albaugh.  Tom Chaney and Noel Ginter also added a lot to this project.

Bringing It All Together

It is so important to get everyone to work to one goal of completing a project.  If there is no communication or coordinating of the efforts everyone will selfishly attempt to get there work done without caring how the whole project looks at the end.  That is why having an experienced team of professionals can make all the difference in the world.

When every one cares about what the end result is than you can be assured it will be much better than when the opposite takes place.  Take the time to really look at the success of a contractor with other trades before hiring the low number who cannot come up with one single reference.  That is what it takes to “Bring it all Together”.

This project was designed by Dominick Tringali.  The general contractor was Kellett Construction.  The mason contractor was Albaugh Masonry Stone and Tile Inc.

A Brick Sculpture Wall in Ann Arbor MI

This wall was designed by Michael J. Dul and Associate.  It was designed and built to retain the change in elevations at the pool area of this project.  However with the  insets and bands that were installed with the colored mortar this wall looks like a piece of art complementing the landscape and pool.

The wall is supported by a poured wall with a very large spread footing.  This is a great example of a great design and installation coming together.
