Stone Fireplace Details & Sources

One of my favorite things about this time of year is sitting by the fire.  When we remodeled our family room 3 years ago, the top item on our wish list for the space was a wood burning stone fireplace.  I wouldn't change a thing about it.  We use it almost daily from October through March.  It is one of the first things you see when you enter our home.  We read here.  Play games here.  Fold laundry here...

It has been so much fun to decorate each season.  Here it is last Christmas.

And last summer.

We did not completely DIY the fireplace.  We had a fireplace company install the firebox and chimney.     We had a family friend do the masonry.  He was meticulous and did a fantastic job.

Here it is before stone:

And as the stone went on:
