The fireplace structure is built. I want either cantera - mantle, hearth, etc. or wood mantle and stone base.

Any suggestions for knowledgable masons or carpenters?
Anyone done this? Experience? Suggestions?

Thanks.

Have you thought converting your fireplace into a small wood burning dutch oven? I have, but not sure if our rental owners would appreciate it. I was going to build a small oven on the Puerto Vallarta deck. Plans changed. It would take someone with skills in high temp mortar and bricks. It will never get as hot as some of the commercial wood ovens around town, but do you really need a pizza in 15 seconds? You can open it to heat a room, close the door at night to keep the sparks out (important if you have heat seeking pets). Can make hearth loaves and overnight roasts and stews. Much more entertaining for guests.
Can send a picture, but this is the one. Cast by the Amish, high quality iron, no bubbles or crustiness.
This is a heavy item, brand new, and here right now - I think $150 is a fair price

nice idea for another situation ... the fireplace is already built with those concrete bricks ... and gas installed for a ventless fire place unit. Just need the decorative stuff .... I think cantera, but could be wood, or could be just plaster and the moldera done with the concrete ..... just need a mason who has some experience.

I have contacted to source cantera the owner of the shop in Ajijic ... I'll follow up with him. He mostly has been a source of materials ... I'm not sure about the skilled labor to install?

thanks ...
