Isn't that great. You just can't get that look with machine-made materials. Or as Carrie said -- oh my gosh.

Thanks for that one Jim.

Cool pics XJ - must weigh a lot huh? The trusses must be super strong to support a rock roof!

The weight of the stone roof is why the English cottages in the Cotswold, when my father-in-law lives, have such a high roof pitch.

I think Ford moved one of those cottages to his Greenfield Village Museums in Dearborn.

That place is a two day trip worth the visit!
