Our Home - Notes about the Construction of our cottage
We have been lucky to have had a discussion with a member of the Société Jersiaise
Geology Section about the stone used to construct the cottage.
The bottom of this quoin still retains the marks left by the wooden wedges which
were used to split this piece of granite.
In contrast, the piece of granite next to the granite seat on the patio has round
marks that indicate that it was split using metal rods.
