We have a finished Granite hearth now! And it looks fabulous! It’s hard to photograph well – but hopefully these pics give an idea … there’s comparison pictures with and without camera flash, to show how tricky it is to get the lighting good:
Lots still to do … get city inspection signed off first for the complete fireplace, then we can sheetrock and close it; after that we need to figure good tile color and design. We also need to build a shelf/cabinet to the right, put down a hardwood floor, redecorate (walls/windows/etc) and finally, new furniture! In to next year before we’re done, maybe?!
