With one area well underway at the Fox and Hounds Pub it is time to turn our attention to the next that will get the treatment. In the new restaurant portion the feature piece will be a small fireplace flanked by two large trees. The fireplace fellow finished installing the fireplace on Friday, clearing the way for the carpenters and dry wallers to build the surround which will allow us to start out work onsite on this portion of the project in a week or so.
As anybody who knows me understands, I am fond of anything but a straight line. The mantle curves gently from end to end tapering in the middle and from the top view it bulges about five inches. The result is a magical piece that will work in concert with the room. The flowing bricks and curved ceiling will complement the mantle and everything will work together to create a room like none other.
