Craft Stone Vintage Ledgestone “Alpine”

In one of Ballarat’s premier new estates, Vintage Ledgestone “Alpine” (CSI-021) at the front of this home gives a bold statement, whilst keeping with the modern design of the home. The Vintage Ledgestone has been laid over a wood frame covered with cement sheet blueboard. This stone was chosen by the owners as a cheaper alternative to natural stone.

A black grout has been used in between the stone to highlight each individual piece of the mountain stone.
