If you want to know more about Firth's Outdoor Fire Place's look here:
3 generations of Manning plaster's.Not quite.But Tony is the 3rd generation Manning Plaster.So cute our little people loved that their Dad was on TV.They were so proud of him.Morning talks at school.
Does doesn't the fireplace look so cool.I am so proud of Tony.He was under alot of pressure doing this job,which he did in 3 days in a row ,which should have taken abit longer.And not being able to get everything close to his work area.Lots of heavy equipment and product.
Here is Mark from Firth's(thanks for all your help Mark),Tony the garden designer(we hope hope your foot has healed Tony),Jim the host of the show and a "hard case",Tony No 1 Plasterer in the Bay,Harold Tony's Dad who he learnt his trade from and Max and Katelyn(the 4th generation plasterers!!)LOL
This is Kris and Tony.Kris such a Lover Lady.Here she is thanking Tony.Congratulation's Kris enjoy your beautiful garden for many years.Well deserved.

Tony is modeling the Tee's we had made for the Mucking Show.
We had a few made as Tony's Dad and Brother Steve helped and Katelyn and Max wanted 1 each.Oh and hats,a must in Sunny Hawkes Bay.LOL.All good to help with self promotion.LOL.Fun thing was the paver guys had done the same thing and had choosen the same colour T-shirt.Funny.
So here is the Firth's Outdoor Fire Place starting to take place.It all comes in casted sections ,which have to be put on a foundation.Each section has to be put over steel which is cemented into the foundations.So this is a very heavy and tricky job,lifting such big heavy section up over the top of the steel.Then the fire bricks are placed.
Here is Tony on the left,his Dad Harold in the middle and his brother Steve on the right.The guys in the background are the pavers.LOL.

Now for some reason blogger doesn't like me uploading to many photo's at once and I am going to try and add the rest without having to do lots of post.LOL.
No sorry can't seem to do it.
