Anytime Batton Builders, Inc.’s construction projects include restoring old stone structures or building with stones from the ground up, it excites Scott seeing it all come together. Careful consideration of the placement of each rock is important to ensure a firm foundation.
“Yes, I am a self-proclaimed rock hound,” says Scott Batton. “I suppose it began with living in a house my dad built in the foundation of an old Civil War barn, playing in the woods and creek that bordered our property and excursions through the woods to Glen Ellen Castle.”
