Building a House With Stone

"I'm designing my own house and I'm wondering what's the average cost for stone or any material that looks like stone to build houses with.


Stone is one of the most classic and enduring building materials. It is also one of the most expensive.

The cost varies widely depending on your location and the particular stone. You should really talk to a local stone mason about pricing. There are several cultured (manufactured) stone products that look OK and may be less expensive than natural stone.

Good luck with your project,
