Danny Lipford: Recently we attended the 2014 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, and we found some pretty cool stuff.

If you desire a more luxurious feel for your fireplace, Eldorado Stone introduced some great do-it-yourself options for indoor fireplace surrounds. Made to look like natural carved limestone, there are several different styles to match your décor and budget. And they ship in three pieces, so you can easily assemble in your home.

Now, speaking of three pieces, Fypon has a similar offering for exterior door surrounds. Their door trim kit comes in one size that’s adjustable for doors 80 to 85 inches tall by 36 inches wide.


  1. Are building a house with fireplace as focal point. The gas fireplace is installed. We wanted floor to ceiling stone but with 3 orders of white stone; they have come in inconsistent in color with many pieces looking dirty-not white. It is Coronado ledgestone. Do you have any suggestions? Even to changing from stone to another material!
