The Chimney Side: Stone Veneer & Steel Cables

The cement-block chimney got a handsome upgrade with cultured-stone veneer. Put up with no visible mortar, it mimics the look of the stacked-stone foundation. The veneer's rough, mottled surface contrasts with the sleek, steel-cable balustrade capped with a cedar rail clear-coated with a nontoxic varnish. Sean designed the deck, with its horizontal bands of stone, cedar, and steel, to reinforce the lines of the house.
