From design to construction, the sitting walls that line the patio and frame the lawn reflect a keen sense for shape, rhythm, and form. The walls are beautiful, but also fun to stand and sit on. Takach takes a decidedly artistic approach to his work, even when it is something as deceptively simple as the construction of a stonewall.
Describing his design process, Takach says, “I try to balance form and function. My background in art, with an emphasis in sculpture, gives my work a heavier weight on the aesthetics of a project. ”
Featuring dry tuck lay construction, the fieldstone walls are safe to play on, yet they have the look of aged New England stone walls. Dewey searched Craigslist on-line to track down a man in Berkeley, Massachusetts who dismantles old stonewalls and ancient foundations to find stones that give the walls a patina of age and authenticity. He says the owners loved the gray-hued fieldstone.
Dewey and Takach, believers in thoughtful design, solid hard work, and knowledgeable expertise have worked on a number of projects in the mid-Cape area. The pair of young entrepreneurs impressed the client. “Their pure, good work was so refreshing,” says the homeowner. “They made a good team.”
