Laying the Stones
- The bottom of the foundation should be large and should be roughly leveled with selected stones.
- The courses should be laid with leaning beds that should be parallel to the natural bed of the material.
- The stone should be shaped and dressed before laying the stone on the wall. No hammering or dressing should be done, and once the stone is laid, else, it will be loosened.
- The courses of the courses should be diminished regularly to keep a surplus stock of stones at the site.
