Manufactured Rock

Now isn't this something. My son is building a house, wants a rock front. I have heard of the 'manufactured rock' before but when I looked at it years ago the quality was quite poor. This stuff is quite another matter. It appears to be a cast concrete, the coloring is very convincing as natural fieldstone and I must admit installing this would be a heck of a lot easier. The question is time or money. Knowing the right farmers still gets you the fieldstone for free. Most will let you 'hand pick it' right from the field, yet :) and there is a certain amount of pleasure in combing rock piles for just the right stones. He on the other hand is pressed for time, so buying it at $6 to $9 a square foot and hiring out the labor is the way he will go. Expensive was a question, compared to what ? Time or Money......
