Hi all i have a modified a-frame that has t111 for siding and an exposed concrete block basement. The previous owner, did not have the gutters long enough or put any drainage leading away from the house.
Since that time i have made sure all water is running away from the house and the basement is super dry.
Since the block is covered with a thin layer of cement, i almost want to say stucco, and since it flaked off in places due to the moisture problems that i fixed, i would like to cover or clad it in fieldstone.
1. do i have to put a membrand down
2. or do i just have to put lathe down and skim coat and then start sticking on the fieldstone
3. any issues with fieldstone i should be aware of.....i have walls and walls of it, i will have no problem with matching withs, i have expericence cutting it also.
4. do i need to leave weep holes or will the lathe channel any water away from the house.
5.how do i start the base? do i have to pour a footing or add a steel shelf hanger to start the bottom course?
