Our friends Bill and Barbara up in El Rito, in the northern part
of New Mexico, took advantage of the Adobe Construction Program
put on by Northern New Mexico College (NNMC) a few years ago
and had the class build a small adobe dome building on their property
for the price of supplying the foundation and the adobe bricks.
Such a deal.

Our friend Susie let us tag along when she went to check out
insulated concrete forms at a job site in Santa Fe, N.M.
She was interested in using Faswall Wall Forms
and had gotten permission from local contractor Doug McDowel
to let us visit his building site where he was using Faswall.

Before we leave the Eureka Springs, Arkansas area I want to include
the Thorncrown Chapel which is on the edge of town.
The website has a nice virtual tour.

Whenever we are driving across the country and we have enough time
for a detour we try to stop at Eureka Springs, Arkansas
And once there the place to be is Spring Street.
The previous post was on the Colonial Stone Buildings Of Winchester, Virginia
but building with stone continued into more modern times.
Above, and the next two photos, show mid 20th century homes.

Winchester, Virginia is a gold mine of historical architectural styles
which have been carefully cared for and restored over the years,
and there is an abundance of stone buildings
throughout the historical downtown area.
