No, we're not specifically seeking out tiny masons to work on fireboxes...this is just a rather large fireplace on a current job.
It's almost a Rumford - maybe we'll call it a hybrid - in that it will have some very desirable reflective heat qualities due to the back wall design, and also some of the flue elements of Rumford to ensure good draw.
Annnd...beautiful herringbone firebrick design. This one is sure to be a super looking fireplace when complete, and just one more great feature of this fantastic home. ~ by Karl Zarling
After decades of stellar work and priceless camaraderie, we're sad to announce Paul Wagner's retirement from Dale Anderson Masonry.
Each of us here has felt Paul's strong presence in the company for so very many years. Early on, Paul was our first and only ‘stone’ guy. He's an artist, in the truest sense of the word. His work has been showcased on all of the very best homes we’ve ever contributed to, and his influence and mentoring to other masons to follow has been and will continue to be felt for years to come. In many ways, Paul Wagner is what DAM has evolved into over the years.
He’s also consistently been one of our hardest working guys, with unrelenting dedication and focus, unselfishness, and commitment to getting things done. And not just getting it done, getting it done as well as it could be. Always a stickler for quality, and he didn’t just settle for ‘good enough’. Paul was and is a ‘company man’, in all the best ways, though he’d probably not want to hear it!
Personally, we all have lots of great memories of Paul, too many to count. As much as DAM will miss seeing Paul Wagner on the job as a fantastic employee, we’ll miss him around here even more as our friend.
On behalf of everyone, “Thank you, Paul Wagner, for being you, and for everything you’ve done for every single person in our family company.” I know I speak for all of us when I wish only the very best for Paul, and Jacky, and the entire Wagner family. Enjoy a few pictures of Paul...mason, husband, father and grandfather. ~ by Karl Zarling
