Sad News

My remodeling guru called. The stacked rock wall is not an option. Apparently because the opening to the right of my fireplace is a hallway, there is no way to finish off the rock without it protruding unattractively and menacingly into the wide open. Having 3 rambunctious little boys who would surely crack their heads open on it, we can't have menacing rock corners. So we are a no go for stacked rock.

But never fear! The Great Fireplace Debate of '09 has come to a resolution! I have ignored all of your counsel in favor of something fabulously dramatic, but I'm not going to tell you what because I'm afraid there may be an uprising of my readership. All you need to know, for now, is that it will look awesome. Don't think this doesn't mean that I don't appreciate your input (too many negatives in that phrase?), because of course I do. But I have a vision...and it is stunning...

Yeah, I think you are ;) I got a sketch from the guy who's going to do the mantle--beautiful!

(Don't get upset folks, Aunt J is a designer. So if I think something might be too out there, I run it by her first.)
