Price: $9.99
We have always loved the look and feel of stone houses. They have an ageless quality that stands in contrast to the built in obsolescence prevalent in today's world. Thirty plus years ago we built own stone house. We researched the available methods, and settled on the slip-form technique popularized by Scott and Helen Nearing. We made several major improvements including better slipforms, creation of a reveal at face of the stones, and foam insulation built into the walls. We have organized our book into two parts. Part I: The Art of Building a House of Stone details an Advanced Slipform Construction Technique from the gathering of stones to the construction of finished structures with a special section detailing building Garden Walls. Part II: From Dream to Reality - Building Our House chronicles our building experience in the summer of 1979 and offers comments gleaned from living in our house.
