Can I get faux stone to match my house? I would totally do that if that was the case. I just know my HOA is a bunch of strick ******** that make you get the material approved etc and they want it to "look" the same as the rest of the neighborhood. Do you know if they make a veneer that is a texas fieldstone? Should match the attached picture.

It costs about 5-6 bucks a square foot and sticks directly onto the cmu or backer board with either mortar or thinset (which I recommend). Arches, etc are no big deal.

Great! I will look into it. How would the veneer form to a curved surface (such as the arched wood storage areas)? Can you think of any major downfalls to going with a veneer vs stone? Any upsides besides saved $$? Thank you for all the help!
