Thanks Daryl,
Actually, I got the name of a British stone mason as he has been doing work on historic buildings through Public Works Canada which may be another source for me.

Gary,

       This is new to me also so I'm winging it.

The two things I would be most concerned about are having a good foundation and preventing moisture from passing through the walls. I'm certain you can take care of the foundation part. Would your client consider a stone veneer house? If so this would turn it back into a conventional house.

Sorry I can't provide any better information than this. Perhaps some architect that specializes in historic restorations may have some ideas. Another possibility is National Research Council. They have done quite a lot of work on building envelopes

Regards,

H. Daryl Richardson

Fellow listers,
I was asked yesterday by a regular client if I could design a stone house for him-field stone. Give him credit, he also asked if he should build a house out of stone. This is new to me and I wonder if anyone out there has any words of wisdom or warning.
