Gas fireplace stone cladding

Gas fireplace stone cladding

This one was fun to knock down - finally completed the last room in my house which has been empty for the last 4 years.

 

Quite straight forward to build; timber frame, cement sheet and stone cladding. Gas heater installed by qualified trade and other than cutting almost every stone piece, this was knocked down in less than a week. Cutting of the stone was a nightmare in the sense of the mess that it obviously makes, I did all cuts in the garage and everything was covered in dust.

 

Best advice I can give is to have a good quality masonry cutting disc for a small grinder, this will make cuts much easier. Splashed some cash on some furniture and it is the perfect spot once the kids go to bed!

Re: Gas Fireplace

Hello @Jimi

 

Thank you for sharing your Gas Fireplace project.

 

What a beautiful fireplace project. The stone cladding gives it such a rich texture and the overall look just blends in so well with the room and furniture. What kind of budget do you recommend putting aside for this type of remodeling? Was there anything that you would have done differently if you had to do it again? I'm sure our members would love to know more about the steps you took to build your fireplace.

 

We look forward to seeing more.

 

Eric
