Fireplace Freshen 6

The Fireplace door has arrived. Took longer than anticipated.(something about mining the ore, making the steel…)

It does look nice. It came out better than I thought.

Construction Notes:
Here in the Southwest, fireplaces are relatively common. That is where the commonality ends. Everybody builds them differently,materials, sizes, locations. So when you are going to remodel yours, be advised that you will probably be buying a custom door. Make sure that your opening is finished.

There are a hundred manufacturers of doors with glossy brochures, showing you finishes, materials and styles to make your head explode.

Before getting a quote,(understand that these are items that they whisper the price in your ears, and after they revive you with smelling salts, add tax) Make sure that your opening is finished.

Take your time and select wisely. These are not the sort of items that you can do over.

    Hi, I have an advertising question regarding the site. Please send me an email, as I cannot find yours on the site. Thanks.

  • Thanks for stopping by. However I do not do accept any advertising outside of the Google widget and my Amazon Wish List. Which currently just about covers the hosting cost of this blog.

    I only mention products I have been in the trenches with. In the best case, my investment will make my life easier, which at the end of the day is what it is all about. I share these with my 4 or 5 loyal readers. In the worst case, I am out a few bucks and much wiser.

    This way I sidestep any sort of editorial control by any third party. I am the last guy on the web you want to send something to, that is a piece of crap. I am not know for diplomacy nor do I suffer fools.
