Today's gallery features our latest natural stone fireplace with hand fabricated Indiana Limestone mantel, corbels, and jack arch details. The fireplace was built using a natural limestone thin veneer. This thin veneer wraps around to the backside of the fireplace (shown in the second last picture), also serving as a stunning limestone feature wall as you enter the home.
This grandiose fireplace is the homes main floor focal point, and was designed by our Masonry Designer and Stone Carver, Ryan Watson. If you missed him on our YouTube channel fabricating these limestone pieces click HERE to watch him in action now.
