"Setting out to create an aesthetically satisfying home of stone on a limited budget and with no previous construction experience the Long's not only succeeded in their efforts but developed a "compromise method" of stone construction that is both simpler and truer to the stonemason's art than the popular slipform method. The author describes the complete building process in clear, easy-to-follow steps and, in the process, dispels the myth of difficulty that surrounds stone construction." --back cover
