Custom Cabinet Modification and Travertine Fireplace in Westlake / Austin

I was called into this custom home in Westlake and asked to modify this custom cabinetry.  It was originally made to hold a projection “big screen” T.V.  The homeowner wanted it modified to accommodate a larger flat screen than the one pictured.  In addition to this, they wanted a real fireplace, done in stone with a mantle.  You can see in the picture to the right,  my design for the fireplace as well as modifications made for the television.  Custom glass doors are being made to conceal the stereo components under the T.V. shelf.  I will post pictures of the finished project.  I was told today by the homeowner that other contractors had told them that they could not make the fireplace out of stone.  Clearly they were wrong.  We used durango travertine for the outer perimeter of the fireplace and used a split face brick pattern  with a combination of light and dark travertine on the recessed portion above the mantle to give it some added texture and  depth.
