No matter what size project you are considering we are happy to review your plans and work with you to offer full transparency on costs and the easy construction principals of building in stone.
Did you know that building in Limestone offers the identical building principals as building in brick?
Did you also know that prices (depending on design complexity) are often very comparable to brick / render construction?
Here is just a snapshot of some of our 2019 projects.
Myth No 1. Limestone is Expensive
Often people think that building in limestone is a complex and a costly process but in fact, it’s exactly the opposite as building in BRUHN Limestone has the exact same building principals as building in brick and is very similar in price to brick / render construction.
As an example, the most common approach to building a home in Australian conditions is to lay a concrete slab and then build a timber or steel frame to support the roof structure. After this process, the home is wrapped with an external skin whether that be brick, block, lightweight or stone products.
Myth No 2. Limestone is difficult to build with
As BRUHN limestone blocks arrive to site dimensionally cut and ready to lay directly off the pallet, the block or bricklayer simply mix their mortar and lay blocks identical to bricks around the home.
Construction incorporates weep holes and expansion joints again identical to brick construction that any reputable architect and builder should be completely familiar with.
Certainly there are a few tricks with building in limestone; like using a light coloured mortar to match the stone and to wet the laying beds with clean water before laying but in summary building in limestone is a simple process and offers a beautiful timeless look as well as offering superior thermal and acoustic qualities.
