    Cool Field Stone Fireplace Facade -- How to

    I have added a fireplace to my 1917 built home. I would like the look of field stone but minus the weight of a full fieldstone Fireplace. I have heard about using real fieldstone to put a Facade around the fireplace giving a full natural look with out the weight.

    Problem: I can not find anything on this topic of how to to. I just want to find out if this is something I can tackle. Or should I settle for the man made stuff.

    Who knows something? ????

    You install it like you do the man made stuff. The secret is getting the field stone thin enough. Wire mesh, mortar bed, buttered stone.
