Our clients have been enjoying their authentic antique reclaimed cobblestone driveway, and recently shared additional photos. These images are special because they’ve been taken by a drone camera which is the only way to capture the massive 10,700 foot driveway.
Our earlier post on this exceptional project described how the Coleman’s desired to find an authentic European cobblestone with a specific color request for their beautiful home in Missouri.
On their many trips to Europe, they fell in love with the quaint cobblestone streets. The Coleman’s were looking for a darker, consistent color – which we found in a reclaimed antique German basalt cobble.
Our process involved searching all over western Europe and multiple samples being mailed to our clients. In addition to the specific color request, the cobbles needed to be reduced in size from their original full height, to a 2” thick height to be set on a mortar base with grouted joints. This was easily managed, as we instructed our European facility to expertly saw-cut these old cobbles to a 2” thickness to accommodate a mortar base.
