Mission: Bring this fireplace from the past into the now
Taking this hearth out and down to ground level does the trick in achieving the look the customer is after.
Once all the rough edges are removed, a granite hearth and fireboards can be symmetrically fitted.
As with any brick slip job, its crucial to keep the lines symmetrical...
Its amazing what a fresh new coat of brick tiles will do for a fireplace's appearance.
With all the hard work completed, this set up is good to go for many more years.
Both visually pleasing, functional with another happy customer!
