Learn to Build a Stone Wall

Updated:2013-08-23 16:14:33
Imagine a stone wall along the entry road of your family's legacy property. Stone walls that are built correctly can last for generations, so the idea that your grandchildren's children could enjoy your stone wall handiwork is not far-fetched. Interest in learning this skill has grown in recent years and there are numerous avenues to getting started. Creating your own stone wall project or participating in a local stone wall building process is a good way to get started. However, learning from the experts may be the best route to take.  

Instructions as follows:

                                                             

Firstly, hire a stone mason to build a section of stone wall on your property and apprentice with him/her. Apprenticeship is a long-held tradition in many trades and is useful when learning a process from the ground up. Make sure the mason is amenable to your help throughout the entire process.
Secondly, create your own learning lab in your backyard or offer to help with a friend's or neighbor's stone wall building project. Create a project for yourself, complete with a material and tool list and a plan. Watch a professional stone-wall builder assemble a peculiar stone wall and then copy the process. Books, videos and demonstrations are great ways to garner the needed information to get started.
Thirdly, take a course in building with stone. Check course schedules at community colleges and schools offering continuing education classes for adults. Home-building retailers offer all kinds of construction and building classes for customers, too. Ask a local stone mason if he will conduct a course for you and a group of friends.
Tips & Warnings
Find an assistant or two to help with the heavy lifting when building your stone wall.
Collecting photos of stone walls makes a nice resource when designing your projects.
