From the time man first constructed permanent homes, stone has been the most plentiful and the strongest material available. What started out as a practical choice has morphed into the epitome of the artist’s dream. Nature has offered us her strength and durability in the most beautiful package.
Whether it is an Egyptian pyramid, a Cotswold cottage or a dramatic contemporary masterpiece, stone has been incorporated to define a structure’s immortality, practicality and beauty. Stone has a way of giving us an extensive range of flexibility. It comes in so many subtle tones, textures and shapes that it has been included in every architectural movement since the beginning of civilization.
But there is a certain power that stone cottages have over us. They endure century after century as the essence of charm in the form of rustic mountain retreats and English cottages combining essential practicality, durability, indestructability and beauty. The stone cottage has the beauty and strength to inspire us and make us grateful for all this earth gives us.
