STONE HOUSES; stone roof,

Stone house, stone roof, Ireland

People who live in stone houses should never throw glass.

This is an active residence, with stone walls and a fully stone roof. Stone roofs like these are not mere stone tiles. The closest close-up picture I could find for these free-form stone is from Croatia at treklens.com/gallery/Europe/Croatia/photo191489.htm.

I see that even modular homes in US are being made of stone, with interesting construction t echniqes like slipform. See US stone construction at hollowtop.com/cls_html/do-it-yourself/stone_masonry.htm; and at northcoast.com/%7Etms/stone.html. No connection to these people, just interesting to read what they do.
