Stones are great and strong materials used in building a house or even just a hut. In the old days, farmers actually used the stones to build a temporary shelter for them and their animals including their agricultural products. Since before, there are already stonemasons. They are known to be the expert in building a stone house. As shown below through a video, the stonemason mentioned about how to build a wall using stones. As he had said, the big and wide stones should be put below.
Flat stones are the good ones to use. A building should have a solid foundation. This is why it is very important to check if the stones are very solid. The big stones should be at the bottom and leave a little space at the center where you can put the tiny pieces of stones. Fill all the empty spaces on the middle. Also, make sure that the stones are laid flat. Level the stones and check if every stone is solid, not being rattled.
There are some tools being used in breaking stones. If the stones are very big, such tools are being used. If a stonemason want to make a stone appear square, that is also possible. Building walls using stones is actually not an easy job at all. It requires proper skills of a stonemason. Piling up stones in a certain area is a lot easier than building a wall with the use of stones. It has to remain flat and balanced.
