Stone House Dorset

The owners of this house in Dorset wanted a stone finish for their new build house that would fit in with the golden stone used on a large number of houses in the local area and have a warm, characterful finish.

Their 4 bedroom detached house was built using insulated timber frame construction with aquaboard panels sheathing. As the structure was already well insulated, 17mm X-Clad panel was attached to the aquaboard. The X-Clad system along with the stone slips is much thinner than traditional stonework and it has maximised the internal space of the property.

Eurobrick supplied circa 130m² of X-Clad which was then faced with Bradstone Rough Dressed Buff slips and corner pieces by Robbie Close, an independent contractor with many years experience installing our systems.

The owners chose to use our Light Sandstone Europoint mortar to finish the project and the final result was well received by their neighbours who appreciated the efforts to make the house fit in with the surrounding area.

The stone used in this project is a reconstructed product which is manufactured to order and is suitable for use with our systems. Our stone finishes are available in a range of different sizes,textures and colours. You can see more in our Stone Range.
