Looking for books and articles about living in a stone house

We are looking at buying an old farmhouse. The original part is about 200 years old stone with walls about a foot thick. Inside and outside is plaster/stacco. It has a two-story wood frame addition and a single-story in-law suite addition. Having only lived in wood frame houses, the idea of living in stone is totally new for me. Can you recommend or point me to any books, articles, or resources about what would be involved, care of, renovation of, how to decorate interior, etc for a stone house?

I'm not allowed to post links yet, but you could do a search for these articles: "buildinggreen stone houses," "mother nature network people who live in stone houses," and "stone house day." Sorry I can't post the actual links!
