I wanted stone walls wherever I lived when I knew we were going to live in this area of New York State.
I wanted the whole package, old house, woods and gardens and stone walls.
We are in a town that was the first settlement , first town, where the 8th President of the US lived, where homes are most often over 100 years old and there seem to be more cows and sheep than people at times.
All of this, in my opinion, is a Good Thing.
Our house had no stone walls. It is not even close to 100 years old . But there are plenty of woods, gardens and as I keep at it ... a baby stone wall is emerging.
Yes, I am building my own. If you don't have it .. make it yourself !
