MIGHIGAN SPLIT STONE FIREPLACE

  This fireplace was adapted to fit the wall that existed prior to this fireplace being built.  The wall was cut out in the middle then a footing was installed in the back to give a good foundation for the new fireplace structure.  Then the right and left sides were raised in order to create the pillars and a place to eventually install lights.  The design was done by James C. Scott and Associates.  The stone is Michigan split stone and the caps are Indiana limestone.  A gas line was installed so that a gas log set could be selected and the fire could be started remotely.  Albaugh Masonry Stone and Tile Inc.  was able to take care of the whole project including demolition, concrete foundation, stone masonry,installing electrical conduits, and drilling the hole for the gas line.  That made a smooth project for the owner with a seamless schedule.
