or those visiting for the
first time, welcome to Stonemice. |
Sharing a passion for design and building by hand.
Growing up around a community that celebrated independent thought and cold weather, nearly everyone I met was either building, planning, or designing, houses with one thing in common. Handmade.
Interesting that it takes a grid-locked economy to suggest these techinques are "cool" again,
while they been in use for centuries around the globe, or hidden from view.
My husband Jeff is very project oriented and with both us working with this enthusiam, we've been able to complete our 5th restoration which features Italian stuccos, and American Clay in Calumet, Michigan.
One creation that remains as mysterious and functionable as ever,
is the native american indian tepee which I lived in, and built, for over ten years.

A Music Story
|"Took myself a little trip out
there on the road. Minnesota
once Lakota - riding the plateaus.
And I dreamed of Indians out there fighting for their lives, thought about the pioneers.
Gets awful cold out there at night...."

What's on the Spinner:
After 13 summers of building and living in Tipis,
Geminids Meteor Shower !
The most reliable meteor shower of the year, the Geminids are characterized by their multi-colored display--65% being white, 26% yellow, and the remaining 9% blue, red and green. They come in at a moderate speed of 21.75 miles per second, therefore they are bright and often produce fireballs.
