Well, it's still high in my opinion for such a small f.p. You can purchase molding / profiles for the mantle and cut the to size. For the face you can use light weight stone panels like coral stone or travertine. I would like to show you some photos on our testimonials page but I think I'm not allowed to promote myself here.... Let me know if I can help.
