Interior stone ledger on framed wall - epoxy.
Hi, I have some beautiful dry stack ledger stone panels (6" X 24") that I would like to put up on an interior wood framed wall. It will be about six feet tall and twelve wide. Is there a way to use some sort of adhesive i can use? Or do I need to go the whole, plywood > tar paper > metal lath > scratch coat > thinset mortar, route?
I have 2X6 wall framing up but nothing else yet.

Welcome ----your questions will be answered right here---no need for your E-mail----

Typically thinset mortar is used--wall is covered with 1/2" Durrock--

However---I'm not a mason---when one shows up--listen to them---Mike--

1/4" Hardi-backer screwed to the studs over sheetrock or 1/2" hardi-backer over the studs is the minimum, and don't be shy with the screws. Thinset the stone to the Hardi-backer and you are fine.

I should also mention that my stud spacing is 24" OC.
Does anyone have an opinion on using Schluter Systems Kerdi Booard instead of cement board? I have used this for tile and found it great to work with.

You should have the studs 16" o.c. or you are on unknown ground. The stone weighs 14# per SqFt +/-, FYI.
