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 builder, and 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 builders mason provide a 48"X48" sample wall for your approval.

Thank you so much! Your answer timing was serendipitous. We started the stone veneer just this week and I took your advice.

The first floor level totals 4,156 square feet.
This includes 600 square feet for the garage space.
The second level floor totals 1,986 square feet.
This includes the finished space above the garage.
There are adjustments based upon the City Zoning,
which are not included in the floor area square footage.
All measurements are from the exterior side of the walls.

The gutter, is a white aluminum "standard" 4 inch gutter. The white gutter collects the rain water and pitches towards the square coper downspout, through a decorative copper "collection" box and then back to the downspout. All of the roof downspouts are connected to a common underground drainage pipe to the underground dry well.

The stone is call New England field stone. Common to the area, but the size and color is based on the quarry you purchase the stone. The stone is 6"-7" thick, installed in a manner where the mortar does not show. The window sills are 3" thick bluestone, with a chiseled front edge, know as rock faced. The entry treads are also rock faced bluestone.
