mantel installed in remodel
in Bend, Oregon!
exceptionally twisted mantel underwent an unusual mounting.
The butt end was attached from the outside of the house through
the wall before the siding was applied. Two inch spacers were
attached to the back of the top end giving the appearance of
the log floating in air. This mantel was installed on
a beautiful Llama ranch in Central Oregon.
When I go out on a mantel install, there is always a certain
excitement when I stand back to view the mantel mounted to the
wall. Every one is different. They are all beautiful and add
immensely to the room. In addition, I think about the fact that
the mantel will be above hands reach for the most part. Juniper
draws people in like a magnet. It beckons to be touched. Unlike
a chair or a table, the fireplace mantels receive no wear. Years
down the road, they remain as fresh as the day they arrive.
