The Stone Huts of Croatia — 2 Comments

  1. Kazuns !Just amazing works of precision art-are they limestone?
    & Are there any structural plans available for Kazun huts ?
    They remind me of the Scottish Broch’s and the Irish Roundhouses -no mortar & still standing!

    • The stone does appear to be limestone, but any kind of stone that can be trimmed flat to seat well should work. I have seen no specific plans, but the concept is really pretty simple; you can tell from the photos that the walls are quite thick. The roof stones must be cantilevered with most of the weight of the stone overlaying the course below it.
