We took off the factory mantel and the granite on the floor and the fireplace surround. Rewired for the TV to be able to sit flush on the wall above fireplace. Built out the wall up to the ceiling and added Hardie backer board and mortar. Laid stones individually. Recycled a downed log from the woods and cut it and stained it for a new mantel. Cut supports and anchored them for the mantel to sit on. Laying slate tiles for the hearth area.
Who did the work:
We did all the work ourselves.
