The brand new location of Monticello Banking Co., in Bowling Green (KY), recently completed their building project and Lee Brick and Block’s local office was honored to be chosen to supply the masonry materials.
The project architect, Dave Gottfried and the general contractor, Stewart-Richey Construction Co. are both from Bowling Green, as is the mason contractor, West Side Masonry.
This gorgeous stone veneer is our own Mountain Stone Products Slate in the Three Inch Stone series.
Brixment’s B-10 buff mortar was used throughout the project, in the stone, as well as in the exterior brick.
The brick was Williamsburg Tudor from Sioux City Brick in the popular Builders Special size. As you can see in this closeup, this brick offers you a tremendous amount of color, texture and character and makes a tremendous combination with the Brixment B-10 buff mortar.
The Williamsburg Tudor’s also work great with the deep, rich colors the Mountain Stone provides in the Three Inch Stone series and especially in the Slate color range.
Even something as plain as the standard bag drop can be made to look appealing, when the attention to detail starts with a great design and ends with fine craftsmanship. Both ends of the spectrum did their jobs well here and it will be an eye-catching detail for years to come.
That same area, under the soft light of dusk and dawn, will make those stops at the bank a pleasant experience. That may well be the most appealing drive-thru ever built.
And lest we forget, that same soft light can be used to highlight a beautiful building material, like the Mountain Stone and create a visual that you’ll not soon forget.
Mountain Stone’s Three Inch Stone series is a popular and versatile building element that gives you the look of quarried limestone for a fraction of the cost.
And last but not least is the sign, usually the last thing built, but the first thing you see. This particular sign used the face brick and the stone in a dazzling combination that will serve Monticello Banking Co. well for many, many years.
One of our sales associates will be glad to help you pick out the perfect combination of brick, stone and mortar for your next building project.
