Traditional use of a great material

Sandstone here on Mallorca and a lot of countries and islands on the outskirts the Mediterranean sea, has been used to create some wonderful architectural features.

When concrete was not around nor steel, arches were made to hold up churches and wine cellar roofs . Even small lintels around windows and doors, sandstone was used to great effect.

We do the same here at AWC (Anthony walton Construcciones), a lot of our new builds and  renovations use sandstone in their  structural make up . We also use sandstone as decoration and to recreate an old or rustic look on a facade, ceilings  or columns.

The photo is of a wooden beamed sandstone ceiling with a sandstone column with a detailed feature to top the column off …..enjoy Traditional use of a great material

    I don’t write many comments, but i did a few searching and wound up here Traditional use of a great material | Mallorca Design and building. And I do have some questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be just me or does it appear like a few of the remarks appear like coming from brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional online sites, I’d like to
    follow anything new you have to post. Would you make a list of all of all
    your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter
    feed?
