    Simple Techniques for Weathering Common Brick Buildings. By Daniel J. Heisey/photos by Douglas Sellers. Necessity is indeed the mother of invention, especially when a model railroader wants to work out details mainly from scratch. One area where improvisation has paid off is with weathering common brick on HO scale model buildings. Natural stone was the primary building material in Cyprus in the past. Nowadays, its use is mostly confined to decorative purposes and restoration projects. This study represents the first thorough and systematic investigation of the characteristics of local carbonate stone.

    "Real stones aren't regular," pointed out Jesus Diaz-Mauriño, a Spanish guy who has been coming to this village for years and is currently building a stone house there. That means you'll have to arrange the stones pretty thoughtfully, cramming together pieces that fit with other pieces.   Weathering is a natural process, but human activities can speed it up. For example, certain kinds of air pollution increase the rate of weathering. Burning coal, natural gas, and petroleum releases chemicals such as nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide into the g: building stones.

Building stones are the naturally occurring massive, dense rock which can be cut or shaped into blocks or slabs for use in wall, paving, roofing materials or other construction works.

They have been used as building material since very early period of our civilization. weathering nature, geological and engineering properties and accordingly selection of stone will surely increase life of the rock and the building too.

Stone House Construction is a comprehensive study of Australian stone building techniques in a residential context, for people with an interest in building or renovating, including property owners, architects and builders.

A good building stone must absorb less than 5% water and those stones that absorb more than 10% of water should be rejected.
