I have a small confession to make. I didn't post the photos of the finished wood burner as soon as it was done, and it was actually installed a few weeks ago. If you've read the post about the fire, you'll perhaps have noticed in the photo a messy gap to the left of the fireplace as you look at it. Well, that's gone, and I've been so busy getting rid of the ghastly gap I decided to wait until both parts were finished before posting.
The corner did have a horrid low "wall" of stone with a piece of wood on top, and has always been a rather useless area so this was ripped out when the fire was installed. Now it has a lovely cupboard, a proper place for the telly, some shelves for more books, and an out of the way place for Small's computer desk. It also finally matches the cupboards and shelves that are on the other side.
Until next time. x
