Instead I was contemplating the start of our Christmas scene project. Jan started it today! He sawed the parts for the layers of brick and wood framing and painted the base coat for the brickwork.
And, here are the pieces layered in order. The wood is from our back yard fence, we saved some when it was replaced in April.
It does resemble his childhood fireplace! I know Jan will make it amazing when he renders the brickwork.
