How to build with the oodles and gobs of rocks on our property.
We own 9 acres of woods in the Mark Twain National Forest in South Central Missouri. Our rolling acreage is chock a block full rock. From pea sized, including thousands of brick to concrete block size and up to the size of a Volkswagen Beetle boulders. We are planning a new home and would love to use the stone to build the house. What are the specifics on doing this? Is this a possible do it yourself project after the home is built or during the process? And is there an easy way to split the huge boulders?
