After working with the builder to have his crew install the firebox and basic frame when the house was built, I was able to finish the fireplace myself. I took some time planning, because this fireplace was located in the unfinished walk-out basement. I applied the plywood according to my own design. The fireplace is double-sided, so I designed the mantel to wrap completely around the fire box.
