the stone for the project is common new england fieldstone. it has been installed with the mortar "raked" out to show the stone's prominence. the stone appears to have been installed as a "dry-set" wall, using no mortar, but the stone mason's ability to select and place the stone, secured to the structural exterior wall, with minimal exposed mortar. the stone is approximately 6"-7" thick.

I would recommend that you show your mason the photo and visit the stone yard to obtain the stone products in your area. if you review the photo, the window sills have been installed utilizing 2" rock faced blue stone.

I would also recommend the mason provide a 48"X48" sample wall for your approval.

The roof shingles were 18" length to allow for the curve of the roof.

Thanks. The stone is common new england field stone, and has been utilized as the facade on interior and exterior fireplaces. In this photo you can see the chimney is the same stone. If you are considering the stone for an interior fireplace facade, it may be best to have a fairly large wall surface to be able to show off the stone. Not all stones are as large as in this photo, but the interior of the fireplace will show off best with a larger area incorporating the stone around the firebox.

sorry for the delay. i have update information on most of the photographs within the portfolio. the exterior trim is a azek product, which was painted. i do not have the specific paint manufacturer, or code number in within my file to be able to completely answer your specific question.

i have update information on most of the photographs within the portfolio. the stone is commonly known as new england fieldstone. Most quarries and masons know of the stone, along with the availability to obtain the stone.

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Stone Shows Massive Potential for Homes
Stone can be shaped and arranged. Dressed into irregular shapes and sizes, the stone is then stacked in a carefully planned, yet seemingly random, pattern that shows thought and craftsmanship.
Houzz added this to Saltbox
This variation of the saltbox design features a slight flaring slope.Browse more saltbox photos
