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.

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

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

always a fan of Corinthian. it was popular for a while here has died down a bit due to the price per ton.
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.
