Stonemasonry happens to be one of those professions that was one of the first in the history of construction. It is very much regarded as a traditional skill. Masonry is the building of structures from individual units laid in and bound together by mortar; the term masonry can also refer to the units themselves. The common materials of masonry construction are brick, stone, marble, granite, travertine, limestone, cast stone, concrete block, glass block, stucco tile and cob.
