Throughout the book is Charles McRaven's stonebuilding philosophy -- that careful craftsmanship and time well spent during construction will repay itself many times over. The physical challenges will be offset by tremendous satisfaction and the knowledge that long after the builder is gone, the structure will stand as a personal and historical monument.
Based on years of experience, this book will educate the novice and inspire the seasonal artisan. A stonebuilder at any level will learn how to evaluate each stone and undertake each step in the procedure with an eye toward aesthetics and useful permanence.
In addition to introductory material on acquiring stone and what tools will be necessary, there are chapters with step-by-step instructions on how to build:
-- stone fireplaces
-- a barbecue pit
-- a stone dam
-- a stone bridge
-- a spring house
-- even a home or barn
The final chapter is on proper restoration techniques for stone structures.
Not just a how-to book, but also a good read, Building With Stone is sure to be a reference book and constant companion for all manner of stone journeymen, and will prove to be as enduring a volume as the structures it recommends.
