When we think of the shingle and stone combination, we often think of shore homes. This picturesque farm shows that this beautiful combination can work in any landscape.
This gorgeous home overlooking a saltwater pond utilizes the classic stone and shingle combination to not only create an inviting vacation spot, but also to weather the wear that homes by the sea often face.

Building with stone is a tradition that dates back thousands of years but has been made simpler by modern technology.

The resulting stones weigh from 10 to 18 pounds, making them a more practical, user-friendly choice.
