Plz show me your beautiful fireplace? please

momto4inorNovember 16, 2010

Thanks for all your help on my previous post trying to figure out a specific stone for our fireplaces. Unfortunately, we didn't hit it. HOWEVER, I'm taking on a new approach. Will you show me pictures of your beautiful natural stone fireplaces? Please?

We will have an outdoor fireplace and an indoor fireplace. The outdoor is full masonry, the indoor is a Heatilator, wood burning fireplace. I'd love to see your beautiful fireplaces, but PLEASE only if you can identify your stone for me! No more falling in love with something that we can't find! :) I'd post this on the FP forum, but it has no traffic ...

Appreciate your help!

Oh that's beautiful! I really like that a lot! Are those hickory floors? We're doing natural hickory too!

We just went to our local stoneyard and showed them pics of what we wanted-dry stacked with gray and caramel tones. They had a few samples and we selected our stone. It's a local company (we are in the midwest and they use a quarry in Wisconsin) so you may need to see what's locally available. I don't have the name with me but can dig it up.

Here's mine. It looks much darker in this picture than I think it actually is.

Ours is from Boulder Creek. Ohio Rubble is the style and St. Claire is the color.

We are thinking about using Sierra Shadowstone from Realstone Systems. Haven't built it yet, so no pics. Has anyone else used this? Samples looked nice at the store...

I don't know if anybody would find this beautiful, but it's something I designed way back in 1989. The shelves are mahogany.

We were going to use this young man to do a stone fireplace in our new home, but decided to do something with wood/tile in the craftsman style instead. His work is spectacular.

"Catawba" stone from western VA, black walnut timber for the mantel and ceiling beam, and a Jotul woodstove installed but not shown in this photo. The massive stone structure acts as a heat-sink when the woodstove is cranking, giving off the heat absorbed after the fire dies. The stone was cut on-site and the masons used a "lick-and-stick" minimal mortar technique.
