After the very successful relocation of the Farley Mowat Boat Roofed House Memorial in Port Hope Ontario, Norman Haddow came with us to a job site yesterday and helped as we capped off our round stone wall using flat copes on.

Two years ago he helped on a different project where a wall we had made with flat stones was then capped with round stones.

Which do you prefer?

  1. It's a matter of personal taste, but I prefer flat stones with flat copes... And preferably not built in perfectly straight lines, I think my favorite dry stone walls are those of the ruins of Great Zimbabwe. But it's also a matter of what is available in the region, where I live I would have to import round stones from far away.
