Fire Pit Construction

We just finished this outdoor fire pit in Weaverville,Nc.


We set this fire pit on a concrete slab that will be an extension to the existing flagstone patio.


We formed the fire pit with concrete cap blocks placed in a 3 ft circle. We then anchored them to the slab using rebar and wire.

We then faced the blocks with stone and capped it with Bluestone.


We set the fire pit to be centered on the patio to allow for amazing views and to be close to the new hot tub we installed.

We will finish around the fire pit with flagstone and boulder benches.

Sunken Hot Tub


This week we are installing an in ground hot tub for our clients in Weaverville, NC.

The new tub will sit at the edge of the existing patio with stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

We are designing a new landscape around the tub to include a Pondless water feature, Firepit, extended flagstone patio and planting.

We were happy to work with David’s Home Entertainment out of Waynesville, NC. They provided the hot tub along with great customer service, prompt delivery and a friendly staff. 5 stars for sure!

Check back soon for an update on our progress.

Asheville Flagstone Patio

Custom Flagstone Patio Asheville

We spent the last couple weeks in Asheville building a Flagstone Patio.

This patio was unique because each needed to be set with a machine due to their size and weight. Some of the slabs were 5 inches thick and 800-1000 pounds.


We prepped the base of the patio with 8 inches of compacted drain rock. We then hand selected and cut each slab to fit tightly with the other slabs. Having a tight and consistent joint is crucial for the long term stability of any dry laid flagstone patio.

We used a durable webbing, instead of a traditional strap, to set the slabs. This allowed us to easily remove the webbing after the stone was set without disturbing the base layer. This can be difficult and time consuming for the builder.
