Stucco and simulated stone stucco on old brick.

This simulated stone stucco was hand tooled in Washington, DC

This simulated stone stucco was hand tooled. Permastone was made with forms on the job, and Formstone was shipped premade. This stucco browncoat was scored to form joints, and the stones were finished with color cement mortar. I am always impressed by the workmanship required to do this.

I got a kick out of this. Branding for this simulated stone is "FieldStone"

This FieldStone house is more hand tooled stones in Washington, DC

This FieldStone house is more hand tooled stones. The finished stones are colored cement with Formstone-like colors. These stones were sprinkled wit mica dust for a shony stone like appearance. Check out the stones over the windows. With the fake stone and the obsolete awnings, this house is a relic of 1950's America.
