Looks like you did a good make over!! Any plans for the white face frames?

Hello TopamaxSurvivor,
I wanted to cover the white face frames with thin cypress but my wife likes the contrast between the white and the varnished cypress. However I do plan to replace the white Mantle with cypress. I can get some old cypress that is 3 inches thick X 16 inches deep for the mantle.

You did a great job on the renovation. My question to you is “Will that meet code in your area?” Seems like you have wood too close to the sides and on the hearth itself.

The build is a real enhancement over the original. Must be nice to have a source of big old-growth cypress, I’m jealous.

I wondered about the proximity of the wood to the opening myself. I intend to build a fireplace surround similar to your idea and while researching found that in California I had to have six inches of non-flammable material between the opening and the wood. Looks like your fireplace door frame might meet that. Then again you’re probably not in California so your mileage may vary.

The distance of the wood to the fireplace of about 7 1/2” works out fine. It is a gas log fireplace and the wood does not even feel the slightest bit warm when the gas logs are lit.

What a difference. The cypress looks great. It makes it much more warm and inviting than the brass. Nicely done!
