Beautiful Basement Stone Fireplace

The following fireplace is a blend of our two most popular styles of stones that we call Mountain Stack. The installation is done without a mortar joint and color coordinating hearthstones were installed. The colors are a rich earth tone, but the lighting washes out some of the color.

Our stone installation was coordinated with the homeowner’s contractor. We suggested the built in fireplace and the recessed lighting to create the beautiful shadows at night. The carpenter then built a frame around the fireplace to tie in with the bar.

Hawthorn Woods now allows stone veneer

Hawthorn Woods now allows stone veneer

The Village of Hawthorn Woods in Lake County Il, is now allowing home owners the opportunity to update the look of their home with the use of thin stone veneers. In the past, the village allowed only real stone to be used on the home for both new construction and remodeling. Check with the Building Department first to make sure you meet their criteria.

North Star Stone, Inc. has recently completed two of the first stone veneer projects in the late fall of 2009. The Village Architect, Jeff Pathman was instrumental in getting the changes approved.

Below is an example of home that added new siding and ledge stone veneers.
