The Gas Fireplace

The gas fireplace is backed by a wall of tile that matches the hallway floor slate. While we had Frank's wet saw, we took some of the reject floor tiles and cut them to 4" wide strips. They are mortared to the drywall edge to edge so that they do not need grout. The little fireplace makes a lovely warm patch of floor in front of it and creates a cheery ambiance in the living room as one looks out the windows to the snowy scenes, through the trees to the frozen lake beyond.
