We installed granite throughout this house above Lake Austin for a contractor with whom we've worked for a decade.
We capped the Island by finishing both ends with pieces of stone giving it a very solid look. This Kitchen Countertops were finished in an exotic granite called African Lagoon with a Pencil Round Edge.
The fireplace was quite a challenge but the results speak for them self as we fabricated a solid looking elevated hearth with space underneath for firewood storage.
On the opposite side of the wall the fireplace is topped of with a solid mantle. Both sides were finished with the very beautiful, wild stone called Rainforest Green.
