Our December 2020 Newsletter

It’s early December and most definitely fireplace season! The chilly weather, lights, sights, and sounds of the holidays makes cuddling up by a warm fireplace even more enjoyable. Our recent clients came to us earlier this year with hopes of remodeling their fireplace to create the perfect spot to cozy up next to this winter, along with a show-stopping focal point for their living room. We were blessed with the ability to remodel nearly every room in this client’s home over the last few years, and the fireplace was one of the major projects that continued to get pushed further down the list. They were beyond excited to finally get this renovation done, and it turned out perfect! Take a look at the blog for the full story, photos, and video on this luxury fireplace remodel. Read more
