What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jackson also talks about the class distinctions that made wood dwellings appropriate for those who might have to move on short notice to follow work (or, for farmers, when the land was exhausted), and those that made stone buildings appropriate for families with money who could remain in one place for generations. In another essay in Discovering the Vernacular Landscape, "Stone and Its Substitutes", he asserts that stone "was noble because it had been extracted from the depths of the earth and was timeless." On the other hand, felling a tree is relatively easy and cheap, reinforcing Jackson's distinctions.This cottage in the Blue Ridge Mountains shows how stone can be used for walls and roofs. Together they give the house a solidity that roots it in its place.

I love all of this stone work all over the home! A very classy rustic feel about it. The roof matches it well since it doesn't look highly modernized even though I guess it could be. The garage doors also give a great touch of sophistication. It looks old, classic, castle made into a new modern home. Can you get more perfect?

to show contrast of colors--this one dark trim; other trims could be lighter with same stone but create a softer, less masculine, lodge effect.
