The sun was out but the windchill was a breathtaking -3 on February 11 when the Central Indiana NARI members gathered for their monthly membership meeting. Luckily, inside the Indiana Design Center in Carmel everything was warm and toasty thanks to a presentation by Brian Adams with Godby Hearth and Home and Bob Wilk with Ortal Fireplaces. The presentation covered a huge variety of fireplace solutions with retail price tags ranging from $7,000 to $16,000. The highlight of the Ortal design is that, thanks to creative engineering, consumers can safely place a television or artwork just two feet above the fireplace – an industry first.
For Godby Hearth and Home the February meeting was an opportunity to offer a sneak peek at their new design center. Beginning February 25, remodelers and designers will have the opportunity to send or accompany clients to the new Godby location at the Indiana Design Center where they can view thousands of manufactured fireplace design options and other home improvement solutions virtually via multimedia screens.
The next meeting for the NARI Central Indiana Chapter will take place at 11:15 am on March 10, 2016 at the Scottish Rite Cathedral.
