    That is a beautiful space. Kudos. I think you mentioned somewhere back around June that you were extra worried about break-in fumes as there's a baby on the way? Imagine walking in that room and seeing baby asleep in mom's arms, pup at her feet, warming up by the fire on a cold blustery night. Can't get much better than that. What a great way to cap off the year....

    sorry, didn't even think about it while doing it. Had a lot of chiseling to do on the sides to make it all flush with the hearth. Not sure what kind of trim it is because my father actually precut it for me at his house, i just cut it to exact length and installed it. Its actually two pieces top and bottom

    Ok, that is what I thought it looked like, I was wondering how you were going to tackle trimming something that tall. I will have the same issue if/when I extend my hearth so I will have to add that to the ol memory bank.

    Nice install. Glad it worked out. Keep an eye on the temps getting to the television, btw. Of course, if it's a plasma, it will create its own heat!

    Yup! I posted some but I have to post some more tomorrow, I am finishing up the wires and I stained the trim a little darker. Also need to clean up the living room to show the full finished effect.
