Brick and Stone

In addition to the paint scheme, the brick and stone selections were submitted and approved by the development’s design review committee prior to beginning construction of the house. Robinson Brick in Denver, CO manufactured the brick selected for the house. The stone is from Pray Stone Company and was quarried in Winfield, Kansas. Monarch Cement Company in Humboldt, KS manufactured the masonry cement for the mortar. The sand is from a local sand pit. All these materials qualify as locally produced products.
