    Don't misinterpret knowledge for skill. I lived around concrete work while I was a kid. But only have direct experience with fake stone in one case. My son and I did his fireplace surround a couple years ago. Turned out really well.
    Most important lessons learned -
    1. I don't like cement board
    2. It is very easy to go from too dry to too wet when mixing mud -so add water sparingly. This applies to the scratch coat, the 'butter', and the grout.
    3. You MUST butter the back of the stones, even if you are laying them on a horizontal surface.
    4. You can cut fake stone with a recip saw if you get a good diamond blade - but it will generate a lot of dust. I like it better than a circular saw (did not have a tile saw). When you use a recip saw use some duct tape on the blade hilt and on the stone to protect from marring the stone while you cut.

    Good luck.
    If you believe something to be true, it will be - in it's consequences.

    Project is well under way and if all goes well should be done by next weekend. Slab is being laid Monday at 9am, then roofer and electrician follow once slab is dry. I dug some nasty holes today and have much respect for any professional post hole diggers out there. Here's a few shots of the progress thus far

    Are you going to do flag stone or stamped concrete?

    Either way it looks great.

    She's really coming along. Should be ready just in time for the hot weather when you have to go inside in the AC.
