Costly Cement Blocks Face Competition From Stones

By Immaculate Wairimu

A little secret to the perfect home lies buried beneath your feet, but today we can dig it up and show you what you can do with it.

The little secret?


Yes, stones!

Their adaptability makes them almost the perfect building material as they can be used from the foundation and all the way up the walls, and even in the interior and exterior finishes.

And, to make matters even juicier, they can be found anywhere on the ground... and even at the bottom of oceans! Some building traditions using stones have developed partly due to what best suits the area's climatic conditions, as well as availability of the stones in the first place.
