built of the really beautiful local limestone, this house is small but quite grand
the house and the tree hold steadfastly to each other on the wind-whipped landscape
the worn softness of the stone is a strange contrast to the brittle sharpness and geometry of the metal roof.
the southwest corner is failing as the mortar wets and dries, cracking out under the stones
A stalwart little house
