We finally have some progress in our remodel!!! Our fireplace surround and marble tiles were installed today. The interesting thing about this surround is that it is made of styrofoam, similar to the ceiling beams you may have read about. This styrofoam is much easier to work with and much more affordable than pouring a concrete form and installing it or wrapping chicken wire around a form and covering it with plaster. I am ready to light a fire!! S’mores anyone?
