"Dream Builders" on HGTV
Episode: "Maryland Farmhouse, Big Sky Penthouse"

An award-winning builder creates a modern classic in a "guy friendly" Colonial farmhouse set on 10 acres in Maryland's horse country. The Moonlight Basin lodge near Bozeman, Mont. features four luxurious penthouse apartments. A couple recreates a 19th-century British manor in the Colorado Rockies. A 1797 house in Delaware gets its name from a stray cannonball that struck the house during a War of 1812 skirmish. A spray-on foam insulation made from soybeans may be the most environmentally-friendly alternative available.

Derek and Dean build a stone fire pit with a crushed stone seating area in a backyard. They go to a local quarry to pick out a mixture of Connecticut green and New England fieldstone for the fire pit. They share tips on what stones to look for at the quarry and how to position and organize those stones onsite to ensure an easy installation and beautiful finished project. During the build, they explain ratio, mud mixing, chiseling and generally how to finesse the stone into place.
