Working on interior fireplace veneer is a nice change of pace from my typical outdoor projects. During the winter months it gets me out of the cold, which is always welcome! I’m currently working for a homeowner who desired a change to his fireplace. Previously clad with granite veneer, the aesthetic no longer matched other upgrades to the home. The warmth and beauty of fieldstone was much needed to bring together the entire living space.
In addition to fieldstone veneer, a bluestone hearth is being installed. Bluestone works wonderfully with fieldstone veneer since the palette of colors are harmonious and the stone is extremely durable and the appearance is timeless. The project will feature a new bluestone header above the fire box and custom pine log mantle.
The project is currently in progress. The old veneer has been removed and concrete backing boards have been installed – all ready for the fieldstone veneer, header, and mantle.
Once the project is complete I will feature photos of its completion in my portfolio of fireplace work.
Here are some progress photos of the fireplace work:
