The Challenge

To provide a robust and traditional finished masonry product to compliment the contemporary look of the new extension;

The product must be able to accommodate the design features specified by the architect

Provide a robust masonry surface to suitable for an A rated dwelling

Provide an aesthetically pleasing design which compliments the modern look of the building

The Solution

Roadstone provided 100m² of Keltstone Walling (Limestone) for the exterior wall of the old cottage building. Keltstone is a unique masonry product which recreates the look of traditional Irish stone. The Keltstone was built to a random bond to maintain the look of natural stone and was complimented by granite cills and modern outdoor lighting.

The Result

The new and old parts of the house blend together seamlessly, and are a great representation of how Keltstone Walling  can be used as a modern architectural feature in a contemporary setting.


Always ensure that a sample panel is built so the masonry can be seen as it will be constructed.

Ensure masonry work is protected over night during construction.
