Cabinets and fireplace

Interior cabinetry has arrived and the kitchen base cabinets have been installed.  Also, the gas fireplace is in place and ready for the surrounding cement board and stone.

We had to make a last-minute design change when we found that the fireplace required 10" more headroom to provide a safe separation to combustibles.  Where the fireplace was to be 6" above the floor and with a lower mantel, it's now down at floor level and the mantel has been raised up.  Who knows?  Maybe it will look better this way.
