Stone foundation with Brick & Stucco????
We have a 100 year old late victorian farm home in Wisconsin. The exterior foundation is partially exposed and consists of field stone covered with mortar, then brick more mortar then a stucco on top. I discovered the brick when I was chiseling out the stucco to do some repairs. My question is...would the stucco have been original to the house? Or would the brick have been the original exterior finish? I would love the look of the brick, but fear this may bring a whole new set of issues with removing the stucco and then attemping to repair and waterproof the brick. Any idea??
