The adjacent cast-in-place concrete bench and the concrete mantle that stands proud of the Idaho Quartzite. The concrete was colored with a very bright ash white color to provide a nice visual contrast. The masonry work for this project proved to be very labor intensive as most of the stone were cut individually to provide the desired look for the fireplace, jacuzzi and the adjacent raised bond beam walls. The mantle is supported by 2-cast-in-place concrete ash white korbels while the concrete pinecone accents were pre-cast. A silver grey concrete was used for the jacuzzi coping and wall caps.
