New Fireplace Mantle
Living Room Remodel With A New Fireplace Mantle
The old mantel above was 6′ high. [photo below] Besides being to large for the room and not to the new owners taste, it was also too high for the owner to have a flat screen t.v. installed. We also had to remove the gas insert.

This remodel project started with us removing the mantle and gas fireplace insert, shown below and installing a new fireplace mantle.

One of the fun things with returning to a house that you did a lot of work to is to get to see the space lived in, filled with furniture and finished.
As someone who is always trying to be more efficient while still delivering quality results it’s also good to see how my work is holding up. It’s also a good opportunity to correct anything that is not holding up.
