Back in November my client sent me the photo of their original concrete brick fireplace after he'd ripped out all the ugly bricks.
He wrote to say they were looking forward to us coming and rebuilding them a nice Rumford fireplace out of stone when we come.
It looked pretty much the same when we arrived last Monday to begin the work.
After staring at the exposed 'rough-in' with the ugly 'heatilator' in the corner for the last three months, I'm thinking my clients will be relieved to have their stone fireplace soon. It will certainly improve the look of the living room.
