The tiles have been removed from the fireplace, leaving us with this:
The main problem here is that we will have to uproot the plywood base to fill in the floor and install the marble slab. Yup, marble baby. We originally were going to do regular tile, then I saw a nice granite slab, then . . .marble. Hey, why not? Oh, because it is really expensive? Good, reason. But I waaaannnntttt it. So, we're getting it! Yipee! This project seems like it is taking forever, so maybe if I order the marble now, I will have it by the time we are ready to start a fire in November.
