9780473099701: Stone House: A Guide to Self-Building With Slipforms

You won't need to be an expert stonemason or even have much construction experience to build your own house with one of the world's most traditional building materials--stone. Stone House: A Guide to Self-Building with Slipforms contains all the information you'll need to successfully build a stone home for yourself, from clearing the building site to topping the stone walls in preparation for roof framing.

While providing a wealth of information on a range of relevant subjects, Tomm Stanley uses an instructional narrative to lead readers through the process of building with stone and slipforms. This is the first book dedicated to slipform stone masonry in many years. Topics include:* Traditional stonemasonry and slipforming,* Basic geology and where to source suitable stone,* Passive solar principles,* Concrete making and techniques for molding and casting concrete, and * Methods for restoring recycled wooden windows and doors. There's even a section on the usage of metric measurement written especially for Americans from the view of an American now living in a metric country.
