FireBug were asked to create a modern fireplace surround to house an inset wood burning stove. The fireplace is created out of brickwork with a heat proof render to finish. We made the mantlepiece from a beautiful piece of horse chestnut. This is finished with a natural wax and shows the natural edge of the wood.
The stove is a Contura i5 inset stove. We manufactured a trim which is painted to match the stove to really finish the fireplace off. Luckily we managed to utilise the original hearth which sits in front of the fireplace and inside the wood store area.
This fireplace really transformed the room and gave the customers a clean and efficient way to heat their living room.
