Stone House Construction is a comprehensive study of Australian stone building techniques in a residential context, for people with an interest in building or renovating, including property owners, architects and builders. It has a strong theme of historic stone buildings, as traditional forms of building respond to the need for structural integrity and stability over time against weathering. The book covers aspects of building in locally sourced stone, from quarrying on-site to building arches over openings for upper storey walls, and is a source book of examples and methods to help the reader to carry on a tradition of building in local stone. Stone buildings inspire people because they transfer a natural beauty to a human achievement. The book shows many examples of Australian stonework that have not been given exposure in previous architectural references. It promotes Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD) through the continuation of a stonework tradition in Australia.

Have you ever dreamed of building or at least living in a beautiful stone house? For more than five years Stonefield Publishing’s Stone House: A Guide to Self-Building with Slipforms has been the prime source for information on a unique method of stone masonry that affords everyone, regardless of their level of building experience, the opportunity to create walls and even homes of stone. “The technique has been around for a long time,” says author Tomm Stanley, “but it’s not that well known. Add to that the mystique that surrounds the traditional craft of stonemasonry and there’s no wonder that stone houses are not all that common, even in areas where stone is abundant”. The book has now been revised and is being re-released with two new chapters, digital enhancement to the original images and new photographs. Stonefield Publishing’s Marketing Manager Brad Andersen notes, “We’ve received a lot of great feedback from readers over the years but one consistent issue was the image quality. We took those comments to heart and with technology that wasn’t available to us back in 2003 have just brought the photos to life”. Tomm says that writing the new chapters and preparing the revised edition for print allowed him to finally complete his original vision of the book. “One of the new chapters, called Reflections, could only have been written after the passage of time. It’s about looking back and thinking about what could have been done differently, what worked very well and also speculating on potential targets for future alteration. It really finished the story for me and makes it more complete for readers.” Stone House focuses on the story of Tomm Stanley’s own experience of building his house with the slipform method. This book is certainly not your average “how-to” offering; it is more like a tapestry of information and entertainment interwoven with technical advice, diagrams and pictures, tales of the owner builder experience and as the title implies, plenty of guidance on how to build your own stone house using the slipform method of construction. It makes great reading for those that are on the way to becoming self-builders as well as the rest of us that dream of such adventures.

Jefferson County, New York, has one of the richest concentrations of stone houses in America. As many as 500 limestone houses, churches, and commercial buildings were built there before 1860. Some of the buildings are beautiful mansions built by early entrepreneurs, and others are small vernacular farmhouses. Some are clustered together; others dot the countryside near limestone outcroppings. Embedded in the fabric of each building are the stories of its location, its maker, and those who have lived there. Lavishly illustrated with almost 300 photographs, this volume highlights eighty-five stone houses in the region. The editors explore both the beauty and permanence of the stonework and the courage and ambition of the early dwellers. They detail the ways in which skilled masons utilized local limestone and sandstone, crafting double-faced stone walls to protect against fire and harsh winters. The book includes detailed discussions of the geology of the region, the stone buildings that have been lost, and the preservation and care of existing structures. Stone Houses of Jefferson County provides a fascinating look at the intrinsic beauty of these buildings and the historical links they provide to our early settlement.

Featured here are traditional Colonial-style stone houses that epitomize the type, inviting homes in their bucolic settings--on hillsides, beside streams--and their interiors, especially photographed for this book. The Stone House showcases a beloved kind of home that many of us aspire to own and live in--a place of warmth and security, of charm and romance. The stone house speaks to a very basic dream of stability and comfort, and the houses featured here represent the very epitome of this dream. Built in traditional styles with artful construction and considered design, these gems display the hallmarks we associate with the stone house, here polished and beautifully presented: deep fireplaces, thick beamed ceilings, wide plank floors, country kitchens. Focusing on the work of the eminent architect Brognard Okie, who is credited with having greatly contributed to a popular appreciation and understanding of early American domestic architecture and who has had a lasting impact on American residential design, the book will both enchant the reader and serve as an unprecedented resource.
