Product information, and general news
BRUHN Limestone certainly has an excellent and reputable track record of supplying limestone to help build large and often challenging and complex projects but we also embrace the opportunity to help anyone build their family home. Whether your home is a 3 bedroom standard home, a small unit or even a few front decorative pillars we are here to support your every need.
No matter what size project you are considering we are happy to review your plans and work with you to offer full transparency on costs and the easy construction principals of building in stone.
Did you know that building in Limestone offers the identical building principals as building in brick?
Did you also know that prices (depending on design complexity) are often very comparable to brick / render construction?
Here is just a snapshot of some of our 2019 projects.
Bruhn Limestone has been busy in 2019 supplying stone to some magnificent projects in Melbourne with all our builders and clients delighted in the final finish of their homes.
These finishes have been created by the quality of products being supplied by BRUHN Limestone and the mastery of the stone masons building these masterpieces block by block with all the love and care required to achieve this finish.
Not only does BRUHN Limestone have the product range to create these finishes but we are also quarrying some unique colours at the moment that offers this beautiful variation
If you would like to learn more about these types of projects please contact Andrew Carmody on 0425 286 608
BRUHN Limestone blocks are a naturally quarried product that is predominately used for house building and landscaping.
Under normal circumstances, the blocks are laid identical to brick construction where the blocks are mortared together and then tied back to the stud frame. Expansion joints and weep holes are used as per the BCA which will be familiar to all good architects and builders. Double skin construction can be used as a building method as limestone can be load bearing.
General sizing of our ashlar blocks are 290x660x100 with each block weighing approx. 18 kilo so handling of the product by a stone mason or brickie on site is very manageable.
Decorative moulds come in various sizes and are used in plinths, window surrounds, wall bands and parapets etc and can offer your building the character and a touch of old-world class you may be looking for. In saying that if it’s a more modern – contemporary architecture you are considering our limestone with its dense composition and clean sharp lines offers a perfect finish.
Round and square columns are also available and are often used to make a statement in entrances or beautifully enhance an alfresco or entertaining area
The beauty of BRUHN Limestone is that it is all a natural product quarried in our own quarries in Mount Gambier SA although we do also distribute WA Tamala Limestone which offers another alternative to clients looking for variation in Australian Limestone products. We do get variation in colour and generally have a range of light creams to biscuit colours available to choose from.
Once product types, quantities and costs have been communicated and agreed to orders are wrapped, strapped and transported to your building site direct utilising our own trucks and drivers to guarantee the product arrives and in excellent condition.
