Fortunately, I was able to trade days off with one of my co-workers and be home today for him to work on the fireplace…..just one problem-o…..
we thought he was going to make a false front for the fireplace
and he thought that we were doing that part…..oops!
However, he has a friend who needed some work who is a carpenter, so the guy drives down from Joplin, about an hour away, and things are starting to move along now….YAY!
Since the guy drove so far I’m going to see if I can also get him to do our baseboards today while he is here….that would be awesome!
Here is the BEFORE picture of the fireplace with a lot of the stone laid out in front of it….I hope to have an AFTER picture for you tomorrow.
