It's hard to imagine that this fireplace was somewhat of an afterthought. Originally our clients were not going to update their fireplace - they were going to paint their original one. Toward the end of their remodel, the homeowners both decided they wanted to use this beautiful Turquoise Onyx stone that they found at All Natural Stone in the Bay Area as a centerpiece for their living room. The fireplace needed to go and we redesigned the entire wall and surround. The beautiful redwood hearth is a salvaged log from Yankins Reclaimed Wood, finished with tung oil. Eventually the wall will host a TV and Stereo system as well. More photos to follow once the client has moved in...here are few photos of the process. We thank Scan-Top for the excellent fabrication and installation (they managed to do it one piece!) and Lucas Carter for his amazing skills with tung oil and paint!
