Worth adding mantel option from builder on new construction home?

I have the option to add a 6x6 rough sawn timber floating mantel to an outside wood burning fireplace with the builder for a new construction home. The mantel would be stained to match the interior hardwood floors. The cost is $1,350 and I'm wondering if it's worth adding on as an option given the fireplace is stone and I've read that's one of the harder installations to do for mantels. I already have a number of options selected but am trying to add the ones that will be a pain to do later down the road with selecting materials and finding someone to do the installation. Is it worth adding the mantel as a selected option?
