I like the Woodstove being set back into the previous fireplace. We Might b e able to add some stone atop our existing heath and do something like this. Charnwood Island oak fireplace beam, brick rear wall and reclaimed Yorkshire stone hearth.
Great idea for adding a bar to my island. Just add pillars to extend past counter edge DIY Console. Just get 2 corbels and a board - this would be a great idea for the deck. Pefect "buffet" area for dining outside. Keeps patio table just for eating!
