About Us

Dad Customer that day.My first experience as a Mason came early in life. This is due mainly to the fact that my father was a Masonry Contractor. That year that I turned 17 dad decided it was time to start my Masonry apprenticeship. I had helped him many times in summers past, and had a small working knowledge of Brick & Stone. But it soon became apparent that I had a lot to learn from him. That first day dad told me that he was starting a  Stone Wall for a new customer, and we would be meeting with him to discuss the project. Dad felt that I should be their so I could hear what the client wanted to accomplish. This was to be one of many lesson that my dad taut me about the masonry trade.  Know what your customer is expecting of you and how you can provide it. Next stop that day was the local Stone Supplier, to pick out the Stone that the customer had chosen. Dad pulled out several pieces of the Stone and checked them for color, grain and shape. The Stone Wall that we were building that day would be a Dry- Stack Stone Wall, and Dad knew just what he would need to build it and what it would look like when it was done.He had a saying and you might have heard it before goes something like this.  You can put lipstick on a pig but it is still is going to be a pig. I think that this was his way of telling me to take the time to plan what you are doing, and start with the material that will allow you to do the job right.  WOW, what dad didn't,t tell me that day was who we were going to be working for.  So I guess you know, here came surprise #1.

Even as a young man I knew Mr. Hope by site, and knew just how famous he was.  Dad and Mr. Hope sat down and went over the plans for installing the stone masonry,  and I went out and unloaded the truck that held the tools that we would need for the day.  Dad came out after a short time, and went over the job with me and just what he wanted me to do while he was doing the lay out of the stone masonry.  We had only been working about 2 hours before Mr. Hope came out and ask us if we would like to have something cold to drink?  I thought that it was very nice of him to think of us that soon, since we had only just started the project.  Then came the second surprise of the day, when the drinks came out it was Mr. Hope that was bring them out to us, and very soon after that he told us several good jokes and left us with a big smile on our faces.  He seemed to take a personal interests in us, and our stone work every time that he was around.  I have though back many times about that first day as my dad masons helper, and how nice Mr. Hope had been to us.  Then one day some 20 years later I was watching a TV program about the life and times of Bob Hope, and that when I got a 3 surprise about Mr. Hope.  When they told me that back in England Bob Hope,s father was a stone mason.  All I can say is thanks for the memories!

Since that first day many years have passed and I have become my dad.   A Mason with a love of working the Stone, the satisfaction of discovering each new stone while creating  Stone Fireplaces, Patios, Pathways or a Stone Wall, No other material can rival the beauty and grace that Stone brings to your home and Landscape. Stonework continues to fascinate me. Its appeal transcends all national borders, and educational backgrounds. A Stone Wall might be wanted by a house wife or a country farmer for vastly different reasons,  one might think of it as a place to grow flower, while the other might think of it as a place to hold a hillside. When building a Stone Wall it can be planned for, outlined or even diagrammed, but the best work seldom is. It come from an innate feeling that grows inside you, as You work and shape the Stone. There is a flow, or feel, to good Stone Masonry that you either you have or you don't, very often the mason himself cannot tell you how he achieved it. Stone is the ultimate material, there is a pride in masons that drives us to stretch our skills.  www.timwmasonry.com
