American Stone Cottages where influenced by European Architecture namely French and British Cottage design. Over time they became Americanized, with subtle changes. Cottage building took off after World War 1. Soldiers returning home from Europe loved the French and English cottages they saw and started building their version in America. Most Cottages fall into a few design types.

French provincial Cottages, had steep hip roofs, slate and stone, square shape, arch topped windows flanking an Arched door entry.

English Cottage style, had irregular shape, a more casual appearance, Gable roofs and squared window tops.

Other styles include, Cotswold Stone cottage from the Cotswold region, Hobbit design, Storybook, and some tudor styles.

Stone Cottage Catskill

We have been working with the best stone masons for many years on many assorted projects. They have built the best dry laid stone walls ever seen as well as stone fireplaces. We use the same masons on our stone cottage builds. We can replicate any stone style you choose. We specialize in the dry laid look but have done all styles. Our skilled masons are able to keep a style and pattern over the entire project and we hand select special stones to fit certain areas. Many masons make a project look like multiple patterns by changing people and styles. We work to make sure that doesn't happen. You have a choice of full thickness stone and wall or veneer. We use real stone local to the following areas.
