Fire Works Masonry’s latest clients are building a low energy home in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley. While researching energy efficient fireplaces, they discovered the clean burning masonry stove. They contacted Fire Works Masonry for a custom, field stone faced masonry heater. The fireplace is a double bell layout, designed for great efficiency.
One of the first curing fires burns in the firebox in the photo below.
The masonry heater has a wood-box to the left of the firebox and and heated bench to the right. The optional bake-oven sits directly above the firebox.
The wood-box, heated bench, and oven shelf are all shaped from colorful slabs of Tennessee sandstone.
