Luckily, I have a husband who is very handy - he just finished redoing our fireplace!!
Our new smoke stack!
We'll cover the pipe eventually with what will look like a chimney from the outside, but for now, this will do just fine!
Before. . .
Brian did an awesome job moving the mantle and capping off some of the raw edges to make it look like pillars!
Laying the slate hearth, and slate on the back wall.
After two hard weeks of work on the rock and wood. . . our living room is complete!
A lovely fire just in time for the holiday!
Stay warm friends!
There are so many reasons why I love this man, this is just one of them.
