The Solid Look of Granite

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.

Quartzite in Lost Creek

We installed these beautiful Quartzite countertops in a house in the Lost Creek subdivision. The color is a very rare exotic stone called Calcutta Quartzite. The clean finished look of an undermounted stainless steel sink compliments the stainless steel appliances very well.
The customer opted for the sharp contemporary look of the Pencil Round Edge which is a very clean cut look and draws your eyes directly to the beautiful veining in the stone.

A large, but not over sized Island, stands in the middle of the kitchen and leaves plenty of room for seating and another area to show off the gorgeous movement in the Quartzite.
