Rustic Hearth Renovation: Before

Who: Kaye U.
Where: Lyons, GA

We removed the old floor covering and preserved the original tongue-and-groove pine flooring. Removed gypsum board from the walls and uncovered the original tongue-and-groove beadboard. Leveled the room and repaired rotted floor joists. Repaired the fireplace by pouring new concrete and installing reclaimed brick from an old syrup chimney, located on the farm, as a new hearth. Replaced the subfloor and reinstalled the original pine flooring.
