Getting Started With Mortared Stonework
Walls, Patios, Fireplaces, Columns & MoreBook - 2006
Stone is one of the most beautiful, enduring building materials available. Cody Macfie, a third-generation stonemason and writer whose work has appeared in Fine Homebuilding and other magazines, is unequalled at explaining how to work with this wonderful resource. He offers a wealth of information on all the basics, from tools to mortar, site preparation to pattern design. A rich selection of photographs and illustrations show every step of the 20 attractive projects, including a simple and inviting walkway that takes less than a weekend to construct, stately columns at a driveway entrance, and a new façade for a fireplace.
