Stephen Cook ( known as Cookie)

Street mason Stephen Cook (known as Cookie) understands stone, the 52 year old has been working with it since he was 15 years old.

As a craftsmen whose reputation depends on the quality of his workmanship, he refuses to use inferior materials. Stone looks good for decades. "That's why we use it" says Cookie. We source a wide range of high qualify stone from around the world to offer the discerning customer a wide variety of choice.

We offer a complete package from supply to completion, our service includes all associated groundwork drainage and brickwork.

Cookie has more than 35 years experience in quality workmanship working with both new and reclaimed materials and has completed projects at the Houses Of Parliament, Clarance House and Edinburgh's Royal Mile

Cookie and his team of craftsman take just as much pride in doing smaller jobs, once they start it they stick to it until its finished to the customers satisfaction, we don't use sub contract labour and can vouch for the work of the craftsmen we employ.

The Original Stone Paving Company also specialise in water features, we can design and construct large or small water features using natural stone which are both ornate and child friendly.

They are ideal for those who like the idea of water in the garden but are concerned about the safety of the children or grand children

if you are looking for a natural stone driveway or natural stone patio what's built to last

Hi Stephen.

Your sett work looks great. I have done smaller areas in the past and they are a very satisfying material to work with.

Where do you source your layout templates from?

If you need any more info about our equipment, just give me a shout.

Peter.

Hi cookie. Things are slow in Ireland. Not to many dry days. How's things at your end. U do some nice work.

It's hard to get the nice jobs now. If you ever have any work in Ireland you need a hand with give me a shout. By the look of your photos you do a lot of cobble work.

That's a lot of paving. There's a lot of granite paving going on in towns & cities over here at the minute but the rates are not great.

Yes siac have been doing some of the work. I price work for them a few years ago but the job was to big for me. There is a lot going on in Belfast.
