Illustration of the layering of a Random | Uncoursed Rubble Stone Masonry Wall

Random | Uncoursed Rubble

*Under Development*

Process: Minimal tooling; breaking off weak corners
Found: Direct from land or quarry
Uses: Low walls
Style: Natural

Random uncoursed rubble stone masonry is made by stacking broken stones of widely different sizes and qualities. Considered the cheapest and roughest type of stone masonry, random uncoursed rubble masonry is typically made up of stones pulled directly from the land with minimal efforts used to to prepare the corners of the stones before they are laid. Large stones are laid first and the spaces between are followed with smaller broken stones. Random rubble masonry is laid with discontinuous but roughly level courses with expressed faces to emphasize the natural qualities of the stone shapes.
