Architectural Stone Products - Limestone
We provide hundreds of existing
stone designs that are Tudor specific (as well as standard non-Tudor limestone designs).
We welcome bid quote requests on
your new or renovation home projects. Send us the architect's
drawings, and we will give you a quote. If you do not have an architect, we have a staff of Tudor expert architectural designers that can design (in CAD) your custom design elements. We can fully leverage our years of Tudor experience/knowledge to provide complete house design and review services/consultation.
We can produce most any
custom stone design - simply send us your ideas (photos, sketches, or written text) and we can design it ... AND our artisans can make it in standard limestone types (Indiana Buff, Silverdale, Kansas Limestone, Texas Cream, etc) that will provide classic elegance and quality to your Tudor home. Because we also design and fabricate in wood (millwork), leaded glass and other Tudor required materials, we can integrate different disciplines that guarantee proper fit (a high quality door to its carved stone surround for example).
Here are the basic categories of our Tudor existing designs of stone products
and our non-Tudor (standard) elements that will add a truely authentic look to your Tudor project.
Of course we can make
custom stone items per your specifications. All of the stone designs listed here can be customized to fit a variety of openings, lengths, and sizes.

About Tudor Stone/Masonary
Beyond steep gables and
half-timbering, architectural stone elements denote Tudor
architecture (and English architecture). These stone elements
normally take the form of window surrounds and door surrounds
on the exterior. Label mouldings (also know as hood or drip mouldings), which typically top door and
window surrounds, are also requisite for an authentic Tudor
effect. Stone was used heavily in England in Tudor and medieval
times - due to architecture was coming from the fortification
period of the early middle ages. Stone was extremely available
and durable - lasting many times longer than the oak timbering.
This is evident in medieval ruin structures where today only
the stone elements remain. Much of Tudor architecture relies on
natural products - brick and stone being primary materials.
Tudor windows are extremely facinating with their complex stone
mullions, steel casements, and leaded glass panels. A house
design can have a mixture of elements, but stone window and
door surrounds will take the design decidedly English. Stone is almost maintenance-free, needs no termite
protection, and will last a lifetime (or two). Today's
architecture is demanding natural, heavy, and authentic
building materials. Additionally, Tudor architecture requires these stone
elements. Tudor interiors also require a significant amount of
wood and stone. A Tudor house library or study should have wood
walls (small panels only) and a gothic or Tudor arch stone
