A concrete house has recently been constructed in Watertown, Mass., that is the result of considerable research on the problem of constructing a house which would combine as many of the following principles as possible: 1. Maximum protection form the elements. 2. Economical use of materials. 3. Indestructible by fire or elements. 4. Attractive interior surfaces. The result of this research is the system of construction which has been termed "Gun-Stone," because of the combination of gunite and concrete.
