Also, other elements, namely: lintels, arcs, jambs or stone abutments also contribute to provide a typical rough air to construction.
There are numerous types of decorative ideal stones to integrate in a rough facade, and according to the form or design chosen, different effects in the facade will be able to be obtained: slab, brick-shaped stone, stone that simulate the paving stone, piling stone, in cascade, castle, country stack, river or wall, etc.
