Who made your mantle above the oven and how did they make it?

Mantle was made by our builder, and he used a simple timber framework which was then clad with plasterboard. We had to ensure we used fire-resistant boarding on the inside of the mantle. It had a drywall finish. The shelf above the oven was also made by our builder by using a piece of Architrave and then two pieces of wood to create the step detail.
