Stone houses have both enduring and endearing qualities about them. There is an aura of timelessness about them, as if they have always been there and always will be. Perhaps this feeling of timelessness is exuded from the rocks themselves. Building with materials as old as nature makes a home seem as if it were part of the story of the land. Here are a few of the building projects we have worked on recently, some are new builds where the stone has been sympathetically aged to match into their surroundings. We can supply stone to match any existing building for extentions etc. or for entire new build projects.Stephen Nicholson & John Nicholson Master Stone Masons with over 60 yrs experience between them would be happy to discuss any of your stone masonry needs.
