Building with stone
The stone material was always present and useful for people, at all times... How can this material be used in a "modern" way in a building?

transporting and handling stone is different than modern matterials but can be used well if the mine is near by,shall reflect more latter with pictures.

Building with stone
In the Caribbean, and more specifically in Haiti, stone is the main material used for foundation walls and is also widely used for decorative walls. The main reason is that stone is readily available and labor is quite inexpensive. The use of stone in countries such as the USA is mostly limited by time and cost issues.
