Faux Fireplace Mantel For Your Apartment

Fireplace MantelsOur classic designs and castings had been inspired by excellent American Architecture, but made broadly accessible by means of our direct getting, modular production and wood-processing technologies knowledge.

I am giving 4 stars mainly because the solution do not include L brackets (9 )and #six 1/two inch screws (18) and 3 inch wood screws (3). Recommendation is to use 1/2 inch L bracket. But I had difficult time finding them in retailers. Lastly picked up three/4 inch L bracket from Lowes put in the screws with a washer. Missing components do not price significantly, but was a hassle running through the shops, in particular when you are in the middle of installation.

I built the proper side frame and incorporated a box frame for the reduced proper adobe cave. On the left side I constructed a related frame without having the adobe opening. Each sides were reduce so they would type with each other at a slight outside angle of approx 120 degrees. You can make this angle to your liking. Once again each sides want to be secured to the floor, if you have a concrete floor, you will need to have to use the appropriate nail gun.

I particularly like this mantel surround. It literally wraps around a protruding wall. The wall cavity gives area for the fireplace flue and the mantel surround. A quarter section is cut from the columns to enable them to wrap around the pilasters. The top rated and bottom plinth of the column wrap about the wall as effectively. There is ample space on the mantel shelf for nic-nacs, photographs and seasonal decorations.

Per the IRC, the recommendations are to have at least 6 inches of noncombustible veneer among the top rated and sides of the fireplace opening to the nearest combustible mantel legs or breast board. The legs do not have a projection limitation but among 6 and 12 inches above the fireplace, the breastboard can only project 3/four of an inch. At the 12 inch mark, the mantel can project additional, with no projection limitations.
