It's hard to believe this fireplace was ever covered in a river rock arch, but it most certainly was. I came home from picking up kids one evening and there stood Nic, standing in a pile of rubble and covered in dust. This was a bug project for him, but of course, he had it done in no time. He also ripped the stone off the dining room wall and we put up white ship lap and built a bar. It's fantastic and makes me so happy. I have always wanted a bar. Just make the food and hand it straight over to the kids. I like easy. And last but not least. Check out the table he built! I'm so spoiled with this guy. Seriously. I feel like I married a Super-human.
