The architect duo Jonathan and Jane Stone have run their practice together for thirty years. They have chosen to dedicate their careers to restoring old buildings and creating new heritage.

To finance their home, they built three dwellings on the property and rented two out for a few years. Later they turned one into the library and the other one into the office.
