Fireplace and Recessed TV
This is one impressive living room. The Fireplace/mantle is definitely the centerpiece of this magnificent living room. The gas fireplace is 6 foot long 20,00 BTU and is the center of the room feature. We then built out the wall to include a hearth and a mantle which we then tiled. The desired TV and sonos sound system to fit perfectly into the recessed cove we made above the mantle. This allows for a seamless look that is very modern and sleek. This requires tons of painting and lots of custom details to make this one magnificent piece. But we are not done there. We then built solid Wenge wood bookcases to the left and right of the TV complete with LED back lighting. The Wenge was sourced from a local lumber yard and is a very dense dark wood. This was a totally custom design and build that we enjoyed working on.
Another custom feature of this living room is the lighting. We did not go the simple route of recessed lighting. Instead we did an alternating pattern of recessed rectangular bays and 3 light recessed mounts. This required moving water lines drains duct work etc just to create the uplighting from bay to bay.
