Fond du Lac Random Boulders

Naturally inspired lake house cabin exterior stone veneer blend of Full Color Castle Rock castle stone veneer (full veneer stone or thin stone cladding) with vertical siding in medium cedar tones for a nice contrast between the wood and natural stone wainscoting showcases beautiful cottage architecture. Red window trim surrounds, wood and metal railings (for the front porch and backyard deck), and Indiana Buff Cut Stone (or similar natural stone material) wall stone caps, real stone window headers / sills, and craftsman style castle stone pillars that extend into wood porch columns complete the look. A landscape design mix of Chilton Landscape Edging, Fond du Lac Random Boulders, and Fond du Lac Outcroppings are the perfect complement of real stone colors with the architectural stone cut castle stone home. The tight finish of the dry stacked stone retaining wall features was achieved through the proper sorting and cutting of the random boulders and outcropping stone material on site. A Fond du Lac Snapped stone Steps walkway leads to an outdoor living hardscape patio with in-ground fire pit. For a beautiful bonfire / fire pit sitting idea, notice the arrangement of boulders to create a curved outdoor seating stone bench; along with staple indoor / outdoor adirondack chairs to add a colorful touch of outdoor furniture decor.
