I completely disagree. A person posted a solution mentioning a pony wall along with a graphic showing the stacked stone wall covering the wall but not the exposed foundation wall. Rather than chime in with an answer to my specific, topic related inquiry I am lectured to about needing to provide my version info and needing to check other resources and that I should start a new thread. Sorry, but, I have zero patience for that. A specific question was raised regarding a specific post which is entirely on topic with the thread. Why assume that I need to provide additional information for clarification by the poster regarding his/her solution when said solution doesn't appear to address the complete issue?
Look, if a pony wall is not able to cover the foundation wall (which seems to be the case) then the simple answer is "that's not possible" which then makes the suggested pony wall solution for stacked stone siding skirts not really a viable solution as most all go from the ground level and up. Understanding that, then one can move on from all the excessive time put into researching all over the place to get an answer and formulate a workaround, such as some of the workarounds posed in this thread, which work regardless of version (e.g. soffits).
I've run a software company below and am fully aware of the complexity of software and all the various ways to accomplish a task and of how to best serve people inquiring about it. I searched various resources for an answer prior to posting so I don't appreciate the response received. If you don't know the answer to a specific question, then keep to yourself vs lecturing someone else on how they should get an answer. I don't care if someone has posted 1800 times before, if my first post to this forum is met with a lecturing response, the frequent poster has lost their understanding of what it means to welcome new users to this community.
