The house above is “Midnight Black Ledgerock” giving the dark black appeal that is very sought after.
After our first show home the demand for this stone exploded. It is available in a choice of (A) Regular height of 3 to 8″ or (B) Low Rise which is 1 to 3″ height in the Ledgerock (vein face) and is also available in squares and rectangles as well as random shapes or sawn height sizes.
This house is mostly 1 to 3″ Low Rise Midnight Black Ledgerock.
There is also a large percent of 1-3″ height (low rise) Midnight Black on this funeral home. Look for more pictures of this project when it is finished and washed.
Laying the mock-ups helped the owners and the designer decide if they want mortar joints or drystack. They chose drystack and used black bonding mortar, as well as fill in mortar in areas where they didn’t get the perfect tight fit. This insured that if you can see back a tight joint… the dark back-ground gives the effect of a shadow.
The mock-ups (close up) shows that laying a black stone with a light mortar joint looks so different than the section laid with drystack joints.
