No, the stone is 3" high ledge rock - this was used both on the interior and exterior.

Does ledge rock fade over the first few years after installation? I know tiger stripe does as do most natural stones.

All natural stone will fade over time, how much it fades depends on how much natural sunlight its exposed to. The interior ledge rock will fade at a slower pace than the exterior rock.

@ David Small Thanks for the info I have heard sealing it every few years will help maintain the colour - I guess it depends on the square footage!

Hi again David, can you recommend the best outdoor wood to use for soffits? I am researching IPE wood, but wondered what you used on your home?

We used Douglas Fir tongue and groove because of the tight, straight-grained nature of the wood and the light colour. It reinforced the horizontal design and emphasized the architecture of the house.
