$44,350 a year on average
Masons have to work in crews, often in tandem with others. That's usually the best part of the job. Many stone masons, according to qualitative research done by Lowe's home improvement, enjoy the camraderie on the job.
Stone mason is extremely method driven, but also has the creative capacity to create unusual structures with natural rock.
The job requires a plan, a vision and some creativity. Once in a while, a stone mason will be asked to help repair and modify structures.
Some masons have to be detailed drawers and visionaries, particularly when building and creating outdoor living spaces, like outdoor kitchens, fountains and pools.
This is very dependent on the type of work. Commercial work can be very predictable and repetitive. Residential work--particularly non structural projects--can vary widely.
