Should we wrap the limestone around?

jdkrebsJanuary 17, 2013
So my husband handled outside-- and as i drove up to see how it looked --I thought the corner looked bad. I feel like the limestone ends in odd space and I think we need to wrap the limestone to corner - about 4 feet down. So that whole "section" is limestone--
$2500 to change it. Is it worth it?? Or leave it?

Yow might be able to just round the corner and get the look you desire without doing the whole four feet.

not sure what you mean? It does "round" the corner now and I don't like.. this entire section of house with tiny window (which is a closet) should have been completed in stone.. not barely wrapped around corner.. however, we can maybe put shrubs to hide this? What to do and I have to make decision tomorrow. This picture is how you see house when driving up to it in cul de sac. Please advise anyone with thought on if this looks bad, ok or what.

I think it's not particularly wrong, but maybe not what you expected. If it will "forever" be a thorn in your side (I'm thinking it will) then pay the bucks and get it fixed. You will never feel slighted that way.

However, I would also quiz the builder on this. Did the masons make an error? Was there miscommunication between builder and mason? Were you told it would be done a certain way and it wasn't? If so, then the mason should foot that bill. Don't be afraid to pursue this option. They will try to say they didn't make a mistake but check all your avenues before forking over the bucks. Good luck

Should be to the corner. It will help the whole front section look like a structure and not just stone veneer. Well worth the $2500.

it was not mason fault.. my husband planned it this way. I think builder should have advised that it would look like veneer or "front" then. The builder says she doesn't think it is worth 3k to change it. She says we'll put a large pine there anyhow and cover that corner so it won't be visable. My husband's friend is builder and he came by and said it didn't bother him either. I don't know what to do. 3k is so much to fix it when we are already way over budget.
