I was getting really nervous about the stone choice (Aspen) and I've been dying to see it with the siding. The PM said they had started the stone today, so I was able to stop out this afternoon and check it out.
I don't hate it, but I don't know if I love it yet either. I'm definitely happy with it though and I'm looking forward to seeing it completed.
The guys working on the stone were super nice and told me they really liked how it looked (and didn't mind if I took a few pics).
I do really like the front door now that it's been painted. This pic shows pretty much all of the facade components, Stone Mountain Clay siding, White trim, Aspen stone, Bianco brick and the Black Bean front door.
The guys did say the stone was a little wet and would lighten a bit once it dried out. I was expecting it to be significantly lighter based off of the 2'x2' sample we selected, and that was my big worry that it was going to be too light. I think it looks different in the pic below, maybe it's the mortar? Either way I do like it and can't wait to see it finished with the shutters and porch column.
