"For a number of years we thought that a fireplace in our 1762 house was probably much taller, wider and deeper originally ... Richard Irons said that not only was the fireplace much larger, but probably had at least one bake oven in the back. The restoration was done ... we now have the wonderful original fireplace with two interior bake ovens!"

"Mr. Irons is knowledgeable about early brickwork and sensitive to historic requirements. Indeed, there is no other mason I recommend. Hundreds of early dwellings in the Newburyport area have benefited from his careful art."
