Long Description:
"As you enter through the wide swinging doors, a sense of space and simple grandeur is immediate. This is primarily achieved by the open ceiling with exposed triangular wood trusses. The large stones in the imposing fireplace naturally draw your eye to this centerpiece. The mortar is set deep, in between the stones, giving it the appearance of stacked rocks. Outside, on the chimney stack, stones are set perpendicular to create “art” to the rock arrangement." (visit link)
