This working wood fireplace was transformed into a modern gas one. The owner wanted tile as the surrounds on the wall and floor. Here are some shots of the work in progress.
I arrived at the job after the contractor complete the framing, strapping and sheetrocking over the old brick hearth.
My job is to lay the tile, but before starting that, I draw out an exact layout for each 18 x 18 tile, centering the lines over the centre of the fireplace so that everything looks symmetrical. Then I start laying the first few tiles at the hearth area, making sure everything is level as I proceed.
