I'd say it's a little high - closer to 17kWow nice job. If you don't mind me asking how much do you have into the project? I have a room similar size and opted for a free stander mainly due to cost. Wanted to go your route but the quotes I was getting were near the 20k range. You did a excellent job....very nice.
We did not. But, I could see someone who wants a turnkey install paying that much to have someone find, transport, cut to size, finishing, mounting,etc....Did you really spend $1000 on those 2 mantels?
I don't right off. It's a vinyl box. At the top you can see a bit of the stainless steel cap as it overhangs about 2 inches. Then the pipe protrudes a foot or two above, with a round termination cap. Height was determined by the slope of roof and stock length of pipe.Do you have a pic of the outside finished?
Ok, I was going to say looks like about $200 worth of wood. I was going to start selling mantels.We did not. But, I could see someone who wants a turnkey install paying that much to have someone find, transport, cut to size, finishing, mounting,etc....
Probably depends on where you live and the availability of old barns and what species timber you are after.
I should say the main mantel is 80 inches long and 9 x 10. The top is remnant being 6 in tall and I think 74 wide and only 2.5 thick.
