    What a beautiful smile. I love the stonework on your cottage. What kind of stone is that?

    • Actually, that is a parge of a fiber, sand, cement and lime. Think adobe. Then we used real rocks to texture it by pressing their rough surfaces into the soft adobe and we used our fingers to draw lines. Around the corners we built it up a little to make it look more like stone work. In some places we also tested coloring the adobe. The function of that parge is to protect the insulating that surrounds the 100,000 lbs of masonry mass of our cottage and keeps us snug and warm in the winter. Eventually we would like to do an outer wall of real stone but that is a project for the future when more pressing things are completed. See the post about Insulated Mass for a diagram.
