The fireplace framing and hearth stone platforms are built. Our fireplace installer suggested that a 2×4 be placed on the platform so that the firebox can sit raised. The stud at the top of the firebox opening will also need to be raised.
We’ve had some progress in May 2014 on the back porch.
The boards for our originally design deck between the kitchen and laundry room have been built. The carpenters will be working on the side floor beams and the loft deck next.
