Foundation

The foundation was built in November and December 2012.


The urbanite was a joy to work with. Most pieces had one flat side which in most cases made stacking easier.

A surprising discovery was that I really enjoy working with stone. But a degree of patience is needed. For solidity the pieces cannot rock back and forth. A stone wants to lay a certain way and finding the right stone to solidly rest in a certain position may take a several attempts. For me laying stone is best left for days when one is unhurried and feeling well.



A short wall along the interior was added.


Formerly a city street - now a foundation.
