Pat and Grady finishing the mantel
FIREPLACE. One of Kathy's makeover goals was to have a real mantel around the fireplace. The prior mantel was just a drywall bumpout (two 2x8's nailed back-to-back), which didn't provide much shelf space. Pat couldn't stand the white tile surround, so he demo'd that. Reconstruction was a team effort, with Jason from Carpets Direct doing the tile work, Barbeques Galore installing fireplace doors manufactured by FDM Co., and Pat and his dad, Grady, building the mantel. We were extremely pleased with the final product and Kathy couldn't wait to decorate it for the holiday season.
