Material surrounding fireplace? - What is the material surrounding the fireplace? Is it a wood-burning fireplace? I was told I couldn't put drywall around the outside of the fireplace--is this plaster or painted plywood or something else? Thanks in advance!

Thank you Coastroad! I'm trying to figure out the best way to update the floor-to-ceiling painted brick of my wraparound corner fireplace. For a clueless new homeowner such as myself, this information is very helpful!

Gotcha. There are a number of ways to skin that proverbial cat.

Post a photo or send one to me at tom@coastroadonline.com and I can help with some recommendations.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Modern Icons: The Case Study Daybed
The sofa looks smashing with this pair of modern webbed chairs. Webbing was a common World War II–era furniture material and became a midcentury classic; the designs sprang from a lack of materials available, and clever designers, like Jens Risom and Ralph Rapson, made do with what they had. Rapson was also a Case Study architect.
