Manufactured Stone Veneer on Int basement wall

from_a_buick_8March 4, 2014

Not sure if this is the right forum or not.
I am starting a remodel on my basement. On one of my walls i want to use a Manufactured Stone Veneer. This wall will be 35 ft long (ceiling height is 7ft). Installing the stone will be new to me so i am looking for some suggestions on building the wall in a way to make the job easier for a newbie like me.

The plan right now is 1" rigid foam XPS board against the basement wall, 2 by 4 frame wall, fiberglass inbetween the studs. Is there any type of board i can use so i can skip the metal lath and scratch coat step?

I was thinking HardieBacker board (or would plywood or drywall be better).

Thanks in advance for the help.

here is the Stone veneer i was thinking about using.

On an inside installation, all you need is wallboard and mastic.

Westwood Mills, which manufactures the veneer you chose, says to use Type I mastic for indoor applications.

Of course, outdoor methods will work, if you like to do more than is needed.
