This is one of our most exciting blog posts ever – a beginning to end photo diary showing every step of a fireplace surround build.
Terry Kline, from Missouri, sent in these incredible photos; which chronicle every step of the DIY project that turned their family room fireplace into a stunning centerpiece clad in our panels.
Building a Fireplace Surround
The task started with a non-functional fireplace being created in the corner of the room. "Non-functional" refers to the fact that the fireplace was not attached to an old-fashioned chimney; but instead would feature an electric burner. This gave considerable flexibility in where and how to build it.
With the whole project taking just a few days to complete, the appeal of our panels seems obvious. Even better - and especially relevant to the enterprising Mrs. Kline - is that many of our panels can be ordered "fire rated" - especially suitable for use around the fireplace.
