We literally went down the road about a mile to pick out Tahoe blend rocks off the side of the road to use for our fireplace.

This project is a good alternative for those of you that desire to give your outdated fireplace a new look without all the mess that tearing it down brick by brick would create. Performs along with fireplace remodeling and fireplace construction in Aurora, Highlands Ranch, Centennial, and throughout the entire Denver Colorado metro area.
