Stone


 I love the way the natural stone was used here....not something I would have thought would look good with brick.  But I think this works.

It does go well together well. I love stone houses, each one is unique.

It works aesthetically, though it must drive any stone-waller nuts as structurally it makes no sense at all. It is of course just a thin layer of cladding fixed to the wall. Flint or stone and brick is fairly common around here as the stone available is not suitable for building corners and brick is used for these parts.

It works for me! I love it! I'm not a fan of brick but I do love Stone and the two together are really beautiful it looks like a little fairy house or maybe gnomes live in it

That's a nice house. It could be really charming if it was fixed up some. Brick always reminds me of my Mom's kitchen. Her whole kitchen was brick, and she laid them all herself. : )
