A courtyard with Gray Lueders limestone pavers connects the main home and a detached casita, which has many uses, including the husband’s office and a family room. The area also provides a place for the children to play and ride their bikes.
Turn a dull concrete stoop into a showpiece by capping the treads and risers with stone. The risers can be clad in gray natural granite veneers. Other DIY capping options include clay Saltillo, split-brick, and limestone pavers.
