Another of my Cultured Stone fireplaces featured in Spring 2012 edition of Our Homes Magazine!

These days, it’s impossible to flip through a home improvement, decorating or house & home magazine without seeing at least one application of Cultured Stone. As I’ve stated before, and the many pictures of my work illustrate….cultured stone is a sure way of adding value and warmth to your home.

In the Spring 2012 edition of Our Homes Magazine (Barrie, Orillia, Midland and Innisfil) you will see a featured fireplace that was previously an all-wood trim fireplace. I installed the Cultured Stone over the existing wood fireplace – again, no invasive tear-down involved! This installation can also be applied over existing old and out-dated brick fireplaces without having to remove the existing brick.

Here is the spread from Our Homes - The fireplace I did is in top middle.

Here is a close up of this beautiful custom built fireplace, complete with wainscoting and wall sconces to finish off the look.
