realizations of Bernard, in
Haute Saintonge (south
of France, in
Charente Maritime 17)
- To overcome a lack of natural cut stones, now difficult to find at reasonable prices, red air bricks of type corner 20x27x50cm are covered with reconstituted limestone on 2 and 3 sides, using a wooden mould similar to that whose plan is available on the site.
- The corners stones (quoins) thus obtained are integrated in an interior wall of field stones. - For more realism, some angles are broken. The bricks are filled of mortar, during assembly.
- On these two photographs, only the upper stone, on the left, under the wooden lintel, is true, all the others are false.
- The joints of the rough-stones and the cast stones are achieved by means of a natural non-hydraulic lime mortar with sand of the local quarries.
