Quoins
R E C L A I M E D   A N T I Q U E   S T O N E

The Quoins or outside corners of each structure were often used as opportunities to set the building apart from others. Some craftsman simply cut each corner others would draft the margin. Some craftsman used this opportunity to distinguish and accent their structures with sawn details. Whatever the choice the quoins are a feature that defines the quality of the craftsman that cut and installed them. This is a point where the builder would take special care to cut and set each stone. A corner out of true would not set plumb and would reflect poorly all the way down the line and on the master in charge.
