The Process

We offer a streamlined approach to creating your mantle. Working from one of our base models or a custom design, we are happy to discuss various stone options, custom details and finishes. Your vision is then illustrated through shop drawings that will be sent to you for approval. Once these are accepted, your fireplace will be assigned to one of our carvers and the magic begins. After completion, your piece is carefully wrapped and shipped to your location.

Requesting a Quote

Whether you would like pricing information for one of our models or a custom design, fill out the quote request form below and we will prepare a quote for your project. Once your order is confirmed, payment can be made through PayPal.


Once the shop drawings are approved, we ask that you allow at least eight weeks to receive your mantel. Depending on your design and material of choice, some models can be completed in less time and we will always strive to complete your piece as soon as possible.

Fitting your Mantel

We highly recommend that an experienced stonemason install your mantel. Although the process is simple enough, it is important that the stones be laid employing correct masonry procedures and a proper mortar. Should you have difficulty finding a stonemason in your area, please contact us and we will do our best to find someone locally.
