Custom brick hearth space, Middlesex, Vermont

Here's a sampling of pictures from my most recent work, a custom hearth space between living room and kitchen, built around an already-built cinder-block chimney. On the kitchen side, the big soapstone stove is set up on a raised hearth at a nice angle, with a green-granite counter just above it. On the living room side there is a gas fireplace/heater, adding to the warmth of the space with heat and fire-light. The kitchen, living room, and dining room were all transformed by this project, creating a much warmer feeling for the house, figuratively and literally.

How do you attach a wood post to brick and stone?

Nice firewood storage.
