    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!

    That's a great APR!

    Are you going to put the wiring in the wall?

    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.

    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:

    Not exactly a contractor, but he is my liaison to the woodworking specialist.

    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?

    All done. Now, just waiting for the mantle to be installed.

    That looks about 500 times better than brick.
