MEET THE OWNER


Gregory Savage

Owner
Experienced Mason for 35 Years

I graduated from Hobson State Technological College in 1986 with a Diploma in Masonry.   I have been in the masonry field for  35 years and have operated a successful business for over 21 years.   My experience includes residential and commercial work in Alabama, Georgia, Texas, and US Virgin Islands. 


It is vital for me to build  positive trusting relationships with my clients that's why I am hands-on for every project.   I  enjoy creating what I affectionally call "monuments" enduring evidence of something special left for clients to enjoy for a long time to come.  Our clients ideas are our custom designs.   

 

BRICK

One of the oldest of all building materials, brick projects are durable, flexible and reliable.  The different styles and textures allow for variety in look and form.  


The variety of projects  below help illustrate color, texture and size of brick.  

The three homes below are examples of my ealier brick projects.

Commerial Brick Projects

The two styles of brick accented by a brick band made this brick project unique.


We came back and brick the columns on this church.  

Entry Gates and Columns

Original Design of Entry

What's interesting about this entryway is we had the opportunity to redesign the gate after the county demoed the gate to pave the road.  Take a look at the first design and the second design.

Same Entryway Re-Designed Due to Road Construction

The homeowners and I decided the best design would follow the contour of the land as well as mimic the design of the gate.  

The fencing and gate on the columns above and below were done by McIntosh Fencing located in Griffin, GA.

Thecolumns  below are out of natural or real drystack stone.    

The caps on the columns are also natural stones.

Historical Rennovations

Aaron Parker House Oldest House in Rockdale County 

  Savage Masonry had the privledge to work on the restoration of this 1830 Rockdale County Home in conjuction with Pashen and Nelison and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.  

Here's what the home looked like before the rennovations.  

The challenge of this project was to renovate outdoor and indoor fireplaces to replicate the look of the original 1830's fireplaces and chimneys.

The Lyons Farm House Historial Restoration

Before Restoration Front View of House and Fireplace

Partnering with Pashen and Nelison and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources the Lyon's House historial restoration was exciting and challenging.  Located in Dekalb County and built in 1820 , I was tasked with the masonry conponents of the project including two fireplaces, stone around the bottom of the structure and the underpinning of the home.   The fireplaces stood about 25 feet and needed major restoration due to combing mortar.  The challenge was to match the  consistency and color of the original mortar.

Indoor Fireplaces

Made Made Ruble Stack Stone

This project was one of my favorite indoor fireplace projects.  I loved the challenge of wrapping stone around an existing fireplace and continuing the stone to facade the existing cooking area.

Brick Facades

Firebox was designed to allow the homeowners to insert a heater inside.    The fireplace to right was designed to create an artistic look for the home owners.

Perfect for these homeowners, the riverrock fireplace offers a unique look.

Outdoor Fireplaces

Adding a fireplace  to any outdoor space would add a distinct ambience.  This unique gem back faces the lake and provides warmth, seating and a conversation area perfect for entertaining.   Outdoor fireplaces can range from elaborate and complex to simple and sweet.

No shortcuts were taken in the process to create a beautiful finished product.

Working along side my brother was one of the joys of this project.  


More Trending Outdoor Fireplaces

Ways to entertain outdoors continues to be a big trend across the south.  Customer's ideas become dynamic, creative, and inspired outdoor spaces.  


Outdoor Kitchen


The homeowners wanted to simply wrap an area used for outdoor cooking with stone.  The chose a really beautiful flagstone and matached it with a Mountain Chablis manmade


Pizza Oven is an Outdoor Cooking Dream

The pizza oven added a special element to the owners back yard.  It became the center piece of there small back yard, perfect for entertaining.  The homeowners graciously shared this recent photo and how much they are enjoying the beauty of the stonework.   As I am sure they are also enjoying many pizzas.    

This is project was a creative challenge that was enoyable and fun from start to finish.

The Pizza Oven was the main focus of this project.  However, the overall project was a combined effort of landscaping  and masonry for maximum use of a small backyard.  The top view shows a small firepit with steps leading  down to the pizza oven.  


Outdoor Firepits 

Add a special place for entertaining to any backyard...

 Outdoor Firepits

The natural look of real stone has a perfection of its own. At Savage Masonry, we incorporate the most creative ideas of our customers in form with the modern ideals of function to create dynamically functional space for outdoor entertainment .

Homeowners decided on dark grout to accent the stones.  

This project allowed me to create a space centered around the firepit.   The circuluar outer wall allowed plenty of space for seating to enjoy a fire, conversation or roasting a special treat.



This firepit utilizes landscaping stones and pavers to create seating with a simply designed.  Created by Josh and Brent.   

The  idea of a firepit can fit almost anywhere in your outdoor space.  This one poolside was designed with feet warmers at the bootoot

Brick Pavers

These homeowners wanted to add a vintage look to thier former wood patio.   Its hard to imagine anything other than these beautiful brick pavers laid at a 45 degree angle.

Adding a planter to this project allowed these home owners a place to display thier love of ferns.

Stucco Projects

Stucco Projects

These homeowners decided the ordinary square column needed an upgrade so they chose a Mediterranean style.  After the arches were added, I matched the existing stucco as well as stuccoed the three band tier.
