Ex­quis­ite stonework...

Build It - - READERS’ HOMES -

Mark and Clare are de­lighted with the qual­ity of the stone walls that bor­der the site. ey par­tic­u­larly like how the lo­cally-sourced ma­te­rial forms a beau­ti­ful con­trast with the modern prod­ucts that have been used to fin­ish the ex­te­rior of both houses, es­pe­cially the crisp white ren­der and ex­pan­sive swathes of glaz­ing. “e stone­ma­son worked tire­lessly through win­ter to get this as­pect of the scheme com­pleted”, says Mark. “e weather was so bad, but he car­ried on through all the snow and sleet, with wind blow­ing off the sea, to get ev­ery­thing done.

e whole process lasted from about Jan­uary to April, but the re­sult is won­der­ful”.
