So we have updated the fireplace to the best of our abilities. First time laying bricks and lime wash. Not my first of choices but Wife likes it and that’s what matters cause next week I’m getting my new kubota L3901 tractor. Happy wife happy me. Thanks to all those who contributed to this accomplishment.
