Reclaimed Stones

Project in mind? Get started

Own a part of the PAST, a piece of HISTORY

What we love most about reclaimed materials are that they all have a story to tell; a history to be discovered and preserved. We have harvested cobblestones from historic Faneuil Hall in Boston, paving stones from the Boston Common, cobbles from Belgium villages and sidewalk bricks from Portsmouth NH, all for new use elsewhere.

A new sidewalk project is good news for us! 

From street to our yard--cobbles ready for reuse.

 

For the love of PATINA!

One word, patina. Patina is our passion. We refer to patina a lot around Stone Farm because it gets to the heart of why we love old stone; texture, coloring and graceful aging, that is unique and only found in reclaimed materials.  You really can’t fake patina!

GOOD DESIGN, Naturally

Good design, you know it when you see it. You also understand and appreciate that using natural elements in your designs makes good design even better.  Stone Farm gets it too. Our reclaimed stone products are the perfect mix of natural and historic elements that make your great designs stand out.

Reclaimed pavers and European cobbles make for one amazing barn floor.  Full sized and square European cobbles make this driveway a standout.

LEED ACCREDITED MATERIALS     

Using reclaimed stone in building and landscaping projects allows the reuse of materials without further processing, leaving it unaltered to retain its original technical and structural properties.

By purchasing natural stone and reclaimed stone products you are eligible for credits in a few different environmental improvement categories of LEED NC, the most widely used green building rating system in the US. from the US Green Building Council, including Sustainable Sites (SS), Energy and Atmosphere (EA), Materials and Resources (MR), and Innovation and Design (ID) to name a few.

We cite some examples of how reclaimed and natural stone fits into these categories below:

(thanks to information from the Natural Stone Council: http://www.naturalstonecouncil.org/)

SS credit 7.1 - Heat Island Effect. Use of light-colored natural stone with a solar-reflective index of 29 or greater can reduce heat-island effects. May generate a credit when using stone caps on landscaping walls, stair treads, and pavement.

EA credit 1 - Optimize Energy Performance. The thermal mass of natural stone makes it eligible for credits for materials which positively impact indoor ambient air temperature, energy efficiency. Using natural and reclaimed stone for interior wall stone veneer would be an example of this as they may aid in reducing energy consumption.

MR credits - Several may be garnered due to the durability of stone, including:

Credits 2.1 & 2.2 - Construction Waste Management, divert 50-75% from disposal if “waste” stone used in construction is diverted to a beneficial use rather than disposed of.

Credits 3.1 & 3.2 - Materials Reuse, 5-10%. Apply if salvaged stone can be reused for another purpose in a building design.

Credits 5.1 & 5.2 - Regional Materials, 10-20% extracted, processed and manufactured. Apply of project uses natural stone that has been extracted, harvested or recovered within 500 miles of the project site for a minimum of 10% (cost) of total materials value.
