natural stone exterior application with a twist

new guy. Hopefully I am following protocol. We are going to be installing 4.5 feet high from the ground up of natural stone at my house. 2 of the walls are stucco only. The other two have 3 horizontal boards that start at 12 inches from the ground and are 2.5 feet. When removed I have studs 16 oc then building paper. Basically a gap of 2.5 feet between stucco bottom and stucco top. Lots of info out there but here is what I am thinking. Plywood sheathing..vapor barrier....shims.....1/2" Durock that is plumb with top and bottom. Prep the stucco above and below.....seal the joints....then stone. Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks, John

I wouldn't use cement board (Durock). Around here, most masons use metal lath with a scratch coat instead.
