Builders or stretchers are the staple of stone work. Everything
depends upon the bond to the simple building blocks. They come in all
shapes and sizes. From primitive to point flattened. Pitch faced to
sawn. The more primitive pieces are cut from the quarry and roughly
shaped with a hammer then laid up in the wall. Many of the buildings
here were quarried and then axed in to a plane or true basically hewn
while in its “green” condition and then laid up. Another style of
building stone is pitch faced, meaning that the blocks were quarried and
then with a pitching tool (a specific chisel) worked in to true with a
pillowed face remaining.
