New construction, due to the grade my house will now be 6 ft above ground on one side. Exterior is to be stone with hardi board and batten . Already planing on stone wainscoting but don't want 6 extra feet ofstone. Foundation is post and pier to be enclosed. Thanks

Your house will be sitting on top of a 6' post in this area?

Will the stone go to the ground?

I would pour a footing and build a wall. Cover with stone would be the best option.

One end is 6 ft off the ground on post, thinking of a wall of stained concrete with stone on top of that going up about 10 ft to the roof.( total distance is 16 ft) Does acid stained concrete work outdoors?

Posting to follow because I've also got some not attractive exposed foundation. Wondering about staining?

What are you doing to cover the foundation elsewhere around the house?

Sections that are in proportion will have stone or Hardi Board and batten to the ground. Just one side is too high to look right with all that stone
