Homes made of stones continue to be a trend in exterior design, even at a time when new construction materials are being developed at a rapid pace. A preferred choice for home design in the olden days due to lack of newer materials, stone houses are still in demand due to its high durability. The material is also available in a variety of colours and does not fade over time. We love walking through towns and cities with cobblestone houses and streets that have the ability to take you back in time. And this just goes on to show the durability of stone that has stood the test of time, in between wars over thousands of years.

Stone is a good insulating material, regulating the temperature inside the house and keeping it stable. This makes it a great choice for people who are looking for eco-friendly and sustainable building materials. It also blends beautifully with natural surroundings.

Take a look at some of the stone homes below that use the versatile and sturdy material to create contemporary and modern spaces. We hope this list fills up you with ideas for your future projects.
