This timber home is situated amongst the amazing Vermont mountains. Winner of the 2013 AIA New Hampshire People's Choice Award, Bonin Architects design was inspired by a grand tree located on the property. The use of natural stone with the timber frame is as natural and grounded as the roots of its inspiration. A mix of the Boston Blend Ledgestone and the Greenwich Gray Ledgestone was used around the foundation, as column bases, chimney, and interior fireplace.

Natural Stones that are able to withstand the harshest hot and cold climates
Natural stone as a building material is the oldest and one of the most durable products that can be used as exterior siding. STONEYARD® Thin Veneer is comprised of all natural stones. The longevity and minimal up-keep required once installed make it the perfect siding product. But not all stone is created equal.
That is why we have developed the STONEYARD® Harsh Climate Approved (HCA) rating system. Due to the density of minerals such as granite and quartzite, thin veneer that is HCA is perfect for interior and exterior use in any region, including applications below grade. It is also suitable for use in water features, near salt water, and in areas where blowing sand is a concern. Currently, the following thin veneer lines of natural stone are STONEYARD® Harsh Climate Approved: Boston Blend (predominantly Quartzite), Colonial Tan (predominantly Quartzite), Greenwich Gray (predominantly Quartzite), Newport Mist (predominantly Quartzite), and Vineyard Granite (Granite).
So before deciding on the stone for your exterior siding, make sure that it is STONEYARD® Harsh Climate Approved. Proper installation techniques and the highest quality building material will result in a finished project that will stand the test of time.
