What better a way to spice up your home than to add a natural stone facade. The front entry, column accents, and siding were faced with Stoneyard.com Colonial Tan Mosaic Thin Veneer. White columns and trim really pop against the light beige, gray, and rust colors in the Colonial Tan mix. The dark wood door really pulls your attention to the beautiful statement piece surrounded by a warm blend of stone.

This Massachusetts home was faced using New England Fieldstone Boston Blend Ledgestone Veneer. The stone was laid to give the dry stacked stone appearance with no exposed mortar. The beautiful mix of colors in the Boston Blend works well with the pale yellow color of the home. Corners were not used on this project because white trim enclosed the stone area. Trim, without the use of stone corners, is a cost effective construction option and it enhances the real stone veneer by drawing your eye to this well crafted focal point.

A new science center is under construction at the Norton, MA school Wheaton College. What began in April 2010 is coming to an end and the final bells and whistles are being installed. This includes some amazing freestanding stonewalls that were made using the Boston Blend Ledgestone full thickness Building Veneer.
Approximately 2,000 square feet of stone was purchased and used throughout the landscape. This local stone was sorted and split right here in Littleton, MA. Why is this so important? It keeps in line with "green" building and enables the building to earn LEED certification credits.
This $42 Million dollar project is set for completion in Fall 2011.
Check back soon to see pictures of the final project. Can’t wait and want to see the progress? Take a look at the construction web cam feed! It has pictures and a time-lapse video of the project.
