In the stone masonry our field cut stone veneer has a little different twist.
The application of Cut River Rock or our Cut Field Stone and Quarry Stone Veneer is a little different, the biggest noticeable effects are the light weight of this stone veneer and in the application the smoothed cut back creates a masonry suction effect making a better bond. The light weight of this stone veneer is within the building code and weights about 13 pounds per square foot, and well under the maximum code requirements of 15 pounds per square foot. Cut River Rock stone veneer is lighter than the cement manufactured stone veneer, particularly the corners. So there is no worry for a weight problem, any place that can accept the artificial manufactured stone veneer can certainly withstand Cut River Rock real stone veneer.
Stone veneer from Cut River Rock comes two forms, River Rock, which is obtained from glacial drifts (gravel bars) not stream beds. Fieldstone is what it says, it is from the farm fields. Fieldstone veneer is a little different, it tends to be a little more coarser and the river rock stone veneer is smoother texture. The quarry stone veneer is a little different again in that the edges of the stone tend to be a little sharper except when field stone is used.
The sheer beauty of real stone veneer, whether it is Cut River Rock or Cut Fieldstone can not be over exaggerated and it is certainly not duplicated by artificial. You only have to look into this real stone veneer and you'll see things like conglomerate, a mixture of reds, grays, greens, whites, congealed together. The next stone may be gray drooling with white streaks of quartz and another may possibly have fossils of ancient times or still the next may have iron pyrite crystals, or maybe fools gold. While still another could have silver and gold flecks of mica and the list goes on, gray granite, red granite, black granite, white granite, sandstone, white quartz, aggregate stone and the list goes on there are no two the same.
Our river rock stone veneer comes in a variety of colours. First and most popular is the Multi-colours, Old Homestead. Multi-colour granite. All our stone veneer is cut to a thickness of from 1/2 inch to 2 1/2 inches thick. The diameter is from 4 inches to 14 inches, the length is from 4 inches to 16 inches. The larger sizes are rather rare. the common size is 6 to 10 inches, and of course are irregular shapes.
Corners of real river rock stone veneer. We have solved that problem too. They are cut a 90% angle discarding the bulk leaving a perfect stone veneer corner.

Recent Projects --- from start to completion
On the project it had a strange turn of events that the foundation was a little larger than the building because the orginial building which was new (burnt), the replacement new building on the same foundation, the plans were a bit smaller therefore, it created a situation where we had to build the stone out from the foundation and then curve it in to the wall.
Stone work in progress
This gorgeous home in the Ottawa valley is the creation of Rev.S. Nadon & Rev. R. Medcalf, a Discovery Dream Home constructed by Kealey & Tackaberry Log homes. They chose the Multi colour granite which is so common in the Ontario region.
As you can see, it covers many different types of field stone or river rock granite from almost black to the reddish
which you see a lot in your Ontario country road side rock facing cuts. There are many shades of greys and whites
as well as different beige shades which is an excellent choice.
This little stove needed the heat barrier behind it, this was also done is multi-colour granite. Note: the woodbox entry way to the right.
This breakfast nook feature required many hours of intricate detailed work, sizing and choosing the right shapes and colours to make the blend of the multi-colour granite to compliment the siding.
These little pillars may look odd because the landscaping is not done yet. Note on the bottom of the pillars we used a starter strip to start the stone and they are hooked in to the main column of cement that is below the frost level to eliminate the heaving created by the Ontario winters.
The tops of these pillars, we beveled the stone in such a way to shed the water and eliminate the common flat stone top.

In the fall of 2012 Pat came to the site in Munster, ON, with a photograph of an old fireplace very much like you see in the Quebec pioneer and Ontario homesteader antique settings. Could we duplicate it, or how close could we come? At this time we were doing and old english style fireplace for Malcolm & Sue (see the photos below). I felt it was a challenge that we could accomplish. In the spring of 2013 it all came together.
