Installing stone veneer over 2-inch rigid insulation
We live in climate zone 5A and we unfortunately purchased a log home that only has 3.5″ pine walls with no insulation (we thought there was insulation at the time of purchase per the manufacturers website). Anyway, we want to install 2″ rigid insulation on the outside of the log walls and use stone veneer. I am trying to understand the wall section though. My thought is:
3.5″ pine wall
2″ rigid insulation
metal screen with scratch coat
We are going to put a ledge angle at the base on the stone should only be about 8ft high. But how should we attach the stone metal screen through the 2″ insulation??? Is there a product similar to the plastic “‘studs” within ICF walls that veneer can attach to? If a product like that exists then we could cut the rigid board to 16″ strips and install these stud type members for the metal screen to be secured to. Any thoughts???
