There are a lot of paver options on the market, but when you’re working on a historic property, it’s generally a good idea to use a natural product. In this project, stonemasons Derek Stearns and Dean Marsico use tumbled bluestone pavers to create a landing for this New England home. Tips include how to build over an existing wall, how to properly prep a paver base and how to add a curve to a stone wall.

The dome structure also allows the family to make interior customizations to accommodate their personal lifestyle.
