Last year, my wife Dayna and I purchased a penthouse condo in Burlington with an old gas fireplace. Ken Mallett at Mantel Fashioning Canada in conjunction with Mr. Sean Ohara and his team of professionals from Barbecues Galore designed a new fireplace for the space as well as some unique floating shelves that tied the fireplace beautifully into the rest of the room. He worked with us every step of the way in picking stones, designing the hearth and coordinating with our home theatre guy. The end result was a masterpiece (Fireplace 1 – Below).
We ended up selling the penthouse within 5 months of purchasing it in order to move to the lake side of the same building. Despite the quick turnover, the penthouse sold for 15% more than what we paid for it and that was in large part due to the distinctive fireplace Ken created.
We were so impressed with Ken’s work that we had him design and build a hearth with an electric fireplace and a raw-edged walnut mantel for our new unit (Fireplace 2 – Below). As with the first job, Ken gave us, and every detail of the job, his personal attention. Ken made our experiences enjoyable with his creativity, humour and integrity. Ken kept to the budget and delivered both projects on time and exceeded our expectations in doing so. We highly recommend Ken and Mantel Fashioning Canada.

In 2010, Ken kindly built a beautiful wall enclosure which houses a computer display screen for showcasing student video works in our hallway area. He custom designed, fitted and installed this cabinet as a lockable viewing system which has been in regular use by students.
