We recently were asked to make and install a reclaimed barn beam mantel for this fireplace renovation project. It was a fairly standard project with one exception – the size of the mantel. This mantel measures in at 14 feel long!
As far as bear beams go…14 feet isn’t that long, really. But we don’t see a lot of 14 foot mantels over fireplaces. This is a wall-to-wall mantel, and it turned out beautifully.
This mantel was fabricated from a 10″x10″ barn beam. We ran it through the saw mill to remove the bottom 2 inches…making it a finished 8″x10″ piece. The stain color was matched to the existing flooring.
This fireplace has a little more work to be done before it is finished. A stone face will be installed above the mantel and the lower stone will be etched with muriatic acid for cleaning.
And there is the happy owner looking proud!
