Stacked stone look is a very trendy and popular way to accent your home's interior walls. We were able to apply this directly over the drywall without needing extra support the way that real stone requires. We tacked up spider lath and then skimmed a scratch coat of mortar over it to create a strong hangar for the carved vertical cement. Once dried overnight we applied the second coat of carvable cement and then custom drew the pattern. One of our more labor intensive designs, each stone is hand carved and colored by our artist with the customer input. This is a wall of labor and love and perfectly sets off this high ceiling in this country styled home.
