A few photos of one of our recent installations. As part of an entire backyard installation, we created an outdoor room built into a small slope. The stone wall is a gravity wall we built using Tennessee fieldstone. We shaped the rock and fit it all together to create a more rustic looking wall without using any mortar. We made the bench using a large slab of stone and built it into the wall.
The structure is built out of solid cedar timbers. Nearly every joint is mortise and tenon and held together using wooden pegs, as you see in the photos. All that remains is for the homeowner to add a table and a few chairs and a 'candlelier'.
We look forward to the plantings surrounding this garden room to fill in over the next few years as the garden fills in as we designed.

Paul Langley on Mar 21, 2016Wow, that looks absolutely amazing! I have always loved sturdy hardwood structures like that, and I would love to have one just like it. I would definitely be excited to see what it's like with the chandelier and furniture underneath. Thanks so much for writing! http://www.greenmounttimber.com.au/contact
