using faux stone on interior walls...?


Hate to cross threads, but I understand loud and clear, do I need to follow the same principles that panthony recommended in my thread?

That is your call. Any cracking will take place in the drystack joints, though, so for your specific application I would not personally reframe it that way. I would case the entire stucco'ed portion however, and that may not be to your taste.

The Owens looked very fake compared to the Eldorado. Like I said, the corners of the samples were worn and you could see a flesh colored substraight.

Dude, that thing is fricken beautiful, If mine turns out half that nice I'll be exstatic! Mine is all brick with a cinder block core. It does have a steel surround on the inside, with an all brick chimney that is huge. The width of the fireplace is the width of the chimney outside.

Thanks. I build a fire nearly every night. After aplying the veneer, it was like I was hanging out in some Colorado ski resort. I will be adding a solid wood mantle soon.

Good luck with your priject! Post some pics!
