"hired one of your contractors for my project rebuilding a stone pathway and wall, Doug Bryant (dba "A Lost Art"). I am trying to avoid using the much overused "amazing", but he and his crew are wonderful craftsmen. Doug showed up when he said he would, provided me with a thoughtful proposal and a detailed bid, and produced a finished product which is wildly better than I had imagined possible. Doug is a master craftsman in stone, so I would urge those who hire him to solicit his input at the outset. His specialty is drystone (fitted stonework without mortar). Now that the Mayans are gone, he is probably one of the finest practitioners. Also an intelligent charming individual. Couldn't be happier. And I would never have found him without you"
