Chimney Surround and Mantel

This fireplace is 30 feet tall. The first 8 feet of height was stonework, about 6 feet wide and the rest was made of oak that the customer had cut and processed from his own land . There are three sections to complete the height of the unit and I made them in my shop before installation , having to allow for where they met the beams and the slope of the roof. There are two decorative louvres near the top to allow for any heat to escape and there is a side door for access to the metalbestos chimney that is enclosed, because it is a gas fired fireplace.
