For a newly constructed 6,300-square-foot home in McMinnville, OR, “Oregon Trail Blend,” a 60-40 mix of Camas Grey basalt and Alpine granite, was chosen to be used throughout the interior and exterior design. The stone was quarried locally and fabricated into random- sized rough-cut square and rectangular blocks, which enhance the overall design of the ranch-style residence that captures sweeping views of the countryside.
