You took out the fireplace and hearth then laid the hearth stones flat on the floor? I’d rather have the fireplace.


I’m kidding by the way. I noticed It’s the same material in both photos.

Looking good!



You should play with putting a 2x6 nailer where the mantle goes and put it on the outside of the stone, the way we do all those types of mantles. otherwise you lose an inch and a half of a pre made mantle, and have to scribe the stones on the sides and whatnot,

Ive done some that way, and I agree with you on losing some width on my mantle

But, by losing some width I dont have go so high with the mantle
