    • Skagit county doesn’t allow true stone houses. Due to earthquake potential, it must have a wood-framed core with stones attached to the outside. I tried to get permitted for a full stone wall, but it was impossible here. But I will use real stones cladding the entire exterior and with some stones on the interior and the rest a lime stucco. I know that the Fakkema farm (Dick’s farm) has a true stone house, but that was before new standards (per what my architech says). But it is taking shape. BTW, much of my old fir wood is from Dick’s barn.
