Building Stories: Episode 1: Custom Fireplace

We are building a home that has loads of stories and we're not talking about the height of the house. We have collaborated with the owner, architect, engineers, interior designer, landscape designer and numerous highly skilled tradesmen to create some very custom designs including this French inspired artistic fireplace. Ben Kangos, our Jr. Project Manager gives us a tour of the home beginning with the cast stone replica of a 1800's French fireplace. There's so much more to this new home. So, be looking for our next post. We hope you enjoy watching this fabulous new home unfold on GBCo's Building Stories. Happy Holidays!
