Custom Rustic Ashlar Castle Rock Blend – Interior & Exterior Stone Home

This lakeside home showcases a custom blend of Chilton Rustic stone veneer (80%) and Mill Creek Castle Rock veneer stone (20%) for its exterior stone facade, interior stone walls, and real stone fireplace.

Chilton Rustic stone veneer brings warm earth and fiery real stone color tones to our Ashlar Line. Ashlar describes the finest masonry units of dressed and cut stones that are worked until squared. Capable of thin joints between stones, the linear appearance of an ashlar pattern stone installation results in the most traditional natural stone masonry application. Pieces range in heights from 1/2″ to 8″ and lengths from 6″ up to 42″ for full veneer and 6″ up to 24″ for thin stone veneer. Browns, buffs, oranges, yellows, reds, and rusts add depth to its exquisite natural stone color range.

Mill Creek Castle Rock brings warm natural stone honey tones to our Castle Rock Line. Split to rough squares and rectangles, Mill Creek Castle Rock ranges in lengths from 4″ up to 12″ and heights from 6″ to 42″ for full veneer and 6″ to 24″ for thin veneer stone. Natural stone browns to buffs make for a beautiful color range.


A finished building stone veneer and stacked stone or grout installation in the Ashlar stone veneer pattern of stone installation is sometimes referred to as a 2:1 pattern. The Castle Rock Line pattern of veneer stone installation consists of rough squares and rectangles that are split, not sawn. A finished mixed custom ashlar and castle stone veneer will result in a traditional ashlar pattern with a hint of a castlestone type of stylistic appearance for pieces with greater heights.
