This is a late post…but oh well!

Well, late last winter I got a new fireplace. I did a design in sketch up and rendered it to get a good idea of what it would look like.

It easily let me try out various materials and get a feel for it:

I decided I didn’t like the red on the inside walls, so when I repainted it I went all white (and it looks much better!).

Here’s the old fireplace, which just looked horrendous:



I took it out with the help of beer and Aaron for some heavy lifting. I had to dismantle it all to get it out:


I did the drywall and installed some new windows (that open; the prior ones didn’t open at all and were frosted)

…but a contractor (Jon Arden) did the stone work and install.

    Cool. Thanks for sharing. Hey so what was wrong with the old fireplace that made you need to replace it? Also, did you relocate the heater register? We have a very similar setup here. We have granite slab for the hearth and I still haven’t decided on what I want around the actual fireplace.
