I want to wrap my historic fireplace in metal. I like the look of copper, but I am flexible. I want one big sheet that is pretty easily molded so I can use a press to make the corners, attach it to a basic armature and just slide it over the fire place without any additional attachment. It probably also needs to be a place that would custom cut it. It needs to be 8 feet by 4 feet 1 inch if that helps.
I really want a nice clean look, so I don't want to try and fit several pieces together or anything.
Does anyone have any experience in this or know of some trick I could use that I wouldn't know about?
I found a place that could get it for me for in copper for about $550, but if we make any mistakes we are so screwed.
I am in Atlanta and have a pickup, so I can drive to get it.
