Custom masonry features are possible from the ground up. We can help you to choose the right size, chimney height, flue liner, brick detail, and more.

Design and Building
With a wood-burning fireplace, you are going to need a place to keep wood stored nearby. You could choose to have a built-in wood box as part of your design. The box will need to be large enough to hold enough wood to keep the fire going for an entire evening, or you may choose to have two smaller and more compact boxes installed. You could also choose to have cabinets and doors installed.
This is what is going to help give your fireplace a boost of style and personality. There are many decorative items that could be included as part of your mantel. Precast options are available in granite, cast limestone, and wood. We will help you to determine how wide and long the mantel needs to be depending on what you want to display here.
This is an attached bench which can be added to the front of the fireplace to make it easier for yourself and your guests to get warm by the fire. Prefab options are available, or custom options can be chosen for additional stained concrete or flagstone facing.
This will be a major part of the planning phase. You want to be sure that the lighting doesn’t overpower the glow coming from the fire. You may want to have fixtures installed that highlight the hearth or mantle.
