I've been meaning to get some pics up of our latest indoor project. Kent finished the short end of the fireplace stone work and those two gaping holes in the wall turned into:
A lovely stone wall with two doors. The top one is made of steel with a decorative touch and fancy handle
And on the bottom is a very attractive rustic wooden door. I love how he did it and the handle.
You may be asking, "What's behind Door #1 and Door #2?" Well, behind the steel door you have your basic indoor grill! Who knew? Kent used parts from a couple of older grills to plumb and "knob" the workings. The rack has several positions to choose from, and unbeknownst to me, this cubby had a chimney all its own - making it a real working grill! I didn't photograph behind Door #2 but it is the place where you would place your propane tank to run the grill. (Ok, right now I've got a big tub of dog food slid in there. In a house this size you learn to multi-task your space.)
