Real stone veneer interior wall
« on: January 16, 2009, 03:24:41 PM »
I helped a friend of mine build an addition onto his cabin. It's a rustic place with wane edge siding on the exterior. He is putting a stone veneer wall inside. Thought you may like the pictures. I am a stone wall freak myself... I love 'em.

It's coming together nicely!  I always thought you laid the stone bottom to top...

When using venner stone top first works better...Keeps the mess off the stones. Plus, one stone is not bearing on the one below it.  ;)

How did ya'll do the grouting? I did a small hearth for the heatstove in the basement and did the grout by flinging it in and hand packing, Messy but it filled the cracks full.

Backing should be plywood, then wire lath, then coat with morter, let dry for a week, then let your stones soak in water, spray mist the wall, butter your rock about 1/4" put rock up & fill & smooth around the outside by hand. :P Pooff stone wall....Cheyenne

I used cmt backer board and native stone from the creek bed. It was fun puzzling it together and picking the rock from the creek. Grouting and clean up was no fun at all.

Grouting is no big deal. Go get yourself a grout bag, look like a cake decorating bag, only larger. Put in some stiff mortar and squeeze it in the joints. Then let it set up a while and slick 'er down. It's sorta fun.

 I like the whole she-bang. No rocks like that down here, or, I would do some walls like that, when I re-do our house.

  NICE job.  8) 8)

That looks great! 8)  The stove wall is my favorate with the crooked edge on the right. :)

So whats the difference in the project if it were outside rather than in?

I hate grouting too.    >:(

It is messy, tedious, and a certain pace has to be maintained for the finished product to look good (at least on tile floors if not so much stonework).  The planning, site prep, and the cutting and setting of material can go at whatever pace you are comfortable with - even setting just one or 2 pieces a day when time constraints are tight.

Those are some fine looking walls.  I want to do something like that in my basement for a wood stove.
