GUTTING OUR NEW HOUSE AND HANGING ON TO OUR BUDGET FOR DEAR LIFE
Fireplace

The Fireplace

We’re insulating the house and getting a new heating system, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be using the fireplace.

And since our new home’s fireplace was built by my Dad (who was a talented mason contractor) and my Uncle (who was a great man), word to LC was “Whatever happens DO NOT let the gutters accidentally gut the fireplace.” Luckily it was the downstairs bathroom they accidentally started gutting instead.

The only change we’re thinking of making is with the mantel. As you see in the pre-gutting pic on the left, the mantelpiece is a brown wood. We’re leaning toward switching to a white shelf to match the molding we’ll be putting in (example pic on the right).
