Can't wait to see the finished product. Better hurry. Winter is just a stone throw away. I wish...with the awful heatwave we've been experiencing here in CT. It's been brutal with the humidity. It's like Viet Nam.
Yea ! It was easy with this much help and it weighs 500lbs give or take a few lbs. if it was 250lbs I could have done it with one other person. I am not going to finish the whole area before winter . I haven't been making much money working for myself lately. So it will probably get finished next year but its to the point whee I can put this stove up on it this week . The base is cool they did a great job. My first choice was a large piece of whit/gray granite but I couldn't find anyone who would rough cut that for me . They wanted them all polished . Can't have it all I guess . I'm probably going to cover the brick up with stone and still put the pillars in .
Thanks for the kind words guys!
