Fireplace Bookshelf Built-ins

My mother had always dreamed of an elaborate bookshelf built-in around her boring fireplace. My father, Uncle, and I decided to take on the project as part of an early Christmas present. Things took a lot longer than expected because the walls were not square and so every piece had to be custom cut to fit and look right. It came out better than we could have dreamed though!

  • Beautiful work. I have to believe you added nice value to your home as well as you get to enjoy it immediately. Congratulations. PS. Dad time is pretty cool for both of you.
