Bragg Construction and Remodeling builds beautiful stone fireplaces. This stone fireplace installation project has several parts: The stone wall surround, A Granite hearth stone, A Fir wood mantle, and a slate floor. Here is how it is done:
The cement floor is cleaned and prepped with an isolation barrier. The corner layout is established with a compass.
Framing material is installed with glue and nails. See the laser line on the wall?
Bender board establishes the front edge.
Plywood is cut as a base to granite hearth stone.
Granite hearth stone is fitted.
Wall surround and Fir wood mantle is installed.
Slate floor is installed.
After flooring installation, Slate floor is sealed with silicone sealer for protection.
All four parts of this project come together -the stone surround, the granite hearth, the fir wood mantle, and the slate floor.
The stove is installed and project gets final cleaning. This is a great project for the fall as the weather changes and the thought of a winter fireplace comes calling. This project took about 2 weeks. Bragg Construction and Remodeling guided the clients through the material choices for this project as it is important that the right materials are used at each stage of the build. Now this Portland, Oregon home is ready for the winter with their new stone fireplace installation.
