Thank you for such a detailed reply. I am embarking on a new build next month, and I am interested in this stone. The house will be smooth stucco with a stone detailing around the entry and stone all around foundation. In your opinion, would this be a suitable stone to achieve a cohesive look? I am originally from New England, I like the look and the idea of incorporating this stone into our Atlanta build.

The roof is a standard red cedar shingle, "real wood". There are no preservatives or oils on the shingles. The shingle installation consist of 5/8" CDX plywood sheathing, #15 lb. felt paper, and ice/water membrane along all eaves and valleys. The valleys are constructed with an open copper design, which you may see in other photographs. The color of the roof was natural red cedar that has darken from the exposure to the weather.

Can this stone style be achieved on an existing shingled home? - Is there a type of faux i.e. lightweight stone in this type of look that can be applied to an existing home? (currently has shingled exterior) - Thanks for any advice

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 studio wall, with minimal exposed mortar offers the studio an old cottage feel.

How do you adjust to moving into a smaller home?

I can speak from experience it is 90% mental and 10% purging! ha! Seriously, before you move into a smaller home, get in the mindset of how large/small the rooms are, how much storage space you will have, etc... This will help you know what you need to pare down, sell, donate, etc.. before moving.

Next, mentally come to grips that this is a GOOD thing! Whether it is to live with a loved one, save on utilities and cost of living, etc.. Find good in your move so when you move you can embrace the move.

While it's hard in the beginning, I actually enjoyed being able to walk across the house quickly to get to my young children, and the coziness of the house on a cold rainy night. Once you move, the living will be much easier than you imagined. :)

I hope this helped.

Actually this is a "Studio" which the client built to continue her art work. The design was a large open plan with a stairway to a loft area which was located in the front : above the entry side. The studio also incorporates a small kitchenette, a full fireplace, a storage closet and and bath area. The open cathedral ceiling includes cedar custom trusses, corbels and v-joint boards. The second half round window is located above casement windows on the north side. There is a second entry to the rear courtyard. The "Studio" is linked to the main house through a library hall for reference books. This link can be seen on the left side of the front entry. The link roof is copper. All in all, a wonderful space, but an addition to the main estate house......

***STONE: Like the size/scale...movement...organic feel. Be sure these are not too flat and do have some depth and dimension so they don't look to be flagstone or manufactured. Color close for us but prefer a bit more of a warm grey and w/out the black ones. GROUTED WOULD BE A GOOD LOOK!
