Thanks. Unfortunately "mama" is not happy with the new configuration, so I'll either be buying a new wrap around sofa, or changing it all back... damn women!
Buy the couch.
That's a great APR!
Are you going to put the wiring in the wall?
Not been so lazy here latley huh. Hows that knee holding up to all this work?
The knee is really bad right now. Thank the lord that I had a few Oxy's left over.
Yes Chris, I'm burying the wiring in the wall, but wanted to see exactly where the stone finished, so I could do a good job. I also need to build a box to place the DVR, Blue Ray, and other assorted crap needed to run the TV.
Build a hollow mantle with an open face and put the devices inside.
Hmmm, that might be a great idea.
That's how my old fireplace tv was. The built in cabinet had fake drawer fronts and there was a notch on the side so I could see the cable box and use the remote.
The contractor just came by and measured it all up. Instead of having a second pocket for the DVR, he recommended a hidden flip top, which should easily conceal one of the AR-15's, which I would have here if they weren't outlawed by the Kommiefornia Communist party. :hide:
You hired a contractor?
Not exactly a contractor, but he is my liaison to the woodworking specialist.
Ooooops ... In California ... hearth is required by code if you use wood.
See page 4
Thanks for this CMV. I looked all over that attachment and could not find the hearth requirements for a decorative gas log fireplace. Could you help me find it?
Tile over concrete slab.:beer:
All done. Now, just waiting for the mantle to be installed.
That looks about 500 times better than brick.
