Architectural Cut
Stone Specialist


We are humbled and appreciative to be part of project teams that consistently produce award-winning projects.  Below are just a few.


State – Golden Trowel Award

Residential – Just Home

The stone was chosen by the home owners. They wanted to use Texas Limestone for the rich and elegant look.  The project consisted of Texas “Cordova” Cream which can be found in the window surrounds, balustrade, caps, treads, risers and cornices. A well executed puzzle that once together, was the job of a lifetime.

National – Tucker Award

Residential – Tree House

Design: Cottam Hargrave Architecture

Installation: JP Castelline Masonry

The roughly rectangular site climbs steeply to a view at the rear, with access at the bottom. As a result, the foundation becomes an integral part of the entry sequence.

Stone details include solid lintel blocks, monolithic stone steps and Lueders caps throughout.

Mortarless “zero-joint” coursing, a modernized version of a Mayan “low lift” construction and hand chiseled texture were employed in an effort to meet the collective objective and design created by client and the architect.

St. Austin’s Catholic Church – Austin Texas

An old landmark church that was deteriorating and losing it’s touch of beauty.  We were given the challenge to make it look new.  Over 75% of the stone was restored material.  Much of the stone could not be removed so it was restored in place.  When meeting with the owner, the message was clear, “We want our building to look new and by the way, we worship God every week and there cannot be any interference.”   We also had to consider the location being on a very busy Guadalupe right at the UT campus and a much used sidewalk.  We had great plans on the new and even on the restoration, but it is hard to show what is not known.
