Our latest project is an energy efficient, wood burning, masonry fireplace in Jim Thorpe, PA. The fireplace has a heated limestone bench, mantel, and capping stones. A natural thin veneer stone will face the simple block shell. A small curing fire warms the home for the first time in the photo below.
At the heart of the fireplace is the high temperature double bell core. The hand-built firebrick core is completed in the photo below.
The photo below shows the completed core. The core is ready for the block/brick facing.
