Corinthian Granite Fireplace

We seem to be on a roll using the Corinthian Granite.

This is a smaller fireplace we completed a few months back.... Roughly 7.5 ft wide at the base and around 6 ft high at the mantel.

That is really nice looking work.
Don't see too many wood burners out here.

A couple of questions....how much did that hearth piece weigh? Is the mantle shelf counter balanced in some way?

That is an odd sized firebrick, what are the dimensions?
always a fan of Corinthian. it was popular for a while here has died down a bit due to the price per ton.
I would estimate the hearth slab weighs around 1000-1100 lbs (7.5 ft x 1.75 ft x .5 ft x 160 lbs/cubic ft. ... ish)

Mantel slab extends back under the metal studs and MDF paneling i.e. it is actually deeper than it looks... counter-balances itself

Definitely a team effort.
Thank you.

A trick of the photography perhaps?
These are standard (in our area at least) 2.5" x "4.5" x 9" brick.... of course in reality they are only about 2.25".

Surprisingly, the Corinthian is pretty comparable to our local granite despite the additional shipping costs.

@TScarborough

Here's another shot showing the firebox nearing completion. Might give a better idea of the firebrick sizing.

I love looking at pictures of your work....absolutely beautiful fireplace! :thumbsup:
Yeah it is an optical delusion, they look skinnier in the first picture, but the last one shows them to be normal firebrick.
Is it my imagination or do the sides slant? I like it if it does.
