Other Stone House information:
With the endless supply of shelter possibilities it is incredibly unusual
to find a house made from stone today. However, they do exist and have several
advantages over other structures.
The first and most obvious advantage of owning a stone house is its
affordability. Since stones can be found anywhere and can be gathered
at no cost, building a stone house costs very little. Besides the stones
that you collect you will need sand, cement, gravel, and a few metal
reinforcements. You can build a comfortable house from stone for under
$10, 000, if you can find your stones for free.
Another advantage of living in a stone house is its durability. It
is fireproof, can not be infested by bugs or vermin, and can not rot.
A well built stone structure can stand for centuries. A stone house
can be passed down for generations without having to worry about upkeep.
Natural stone is attractive in its natural state and requires very
little maintenance. It comes in a variety of colors and shapes so the
style of your home is up to you.
In addition, stone houses are great insulators. They slowly heat during
the day to keep you comfortable. In addition a stone house will trap
some warmth within its walls to keep you relatively heated at night.
However, if you live in a particularly rigid climate you may want to
consider additional insulation for heat.
Building a house from stone is not for everyone. However, you can clearly
see that it does have some advantages that you may want to consider.
