And while natural stone has not been completely absent from American homebuilding over the past two centuries, it has generally been a material considered only for the higest end of the building spectrum. However, consumer awareness about natural stone has increaded over the past few decades, and with this has come a broadening of the design palette. Natural stone is finding its way into design plans for everyday residences, as homeowners are taking notice of not only the aesthetic benefits but also the practical advantages of the material. Using natural stone in residential design opens the door to endless possibilities. With such a wide range of materials ont he market today, just about any look imaginable can be created.
