To update on how our Reno is going we are kind of at a standstill due to the weather. The windows still haven’t been installed, so hence the trim but on a positive note our fireplace is complete and looks great. Thank you to Sam and his colleagues, from AM Group Studio Inc., (www.amgroupstudio.com) for installing a beautiful stone fireplace in our family room. The before, wish we took a picture, had black marble surround and only made it look very dark. With the addition of the stone surround the fireplace looks ready to ignite. They also installed beautiful crown molding on the main floor but we decided to install the crown on the upper floor as well. Just a note be prepared to add about 10% more on your budget because as you go along there are things that you will most definitely add on to the renovation. With the addition of the upper floor crown molding we decided not replace the railing right now. We are truly trying to stay within our budget. Here is a pic of the fireplace. More to come!
