Project Description

Soaring nearly 24' and the center of a 1820 timber frame house stands this large stone Rumford fireplace. Built from handpicked and back packed removed, river stone from the Chagrin River in Ohio. The chimney is approximately 4' deep by 8' wide with the opening measuring 48"x48". The Rumford firebox is constructed from Vermont Soapstone with a sandstone hearth. The fireplace surround is hand carved with 1" of relief carved vases with vine and leaves that climb to the lentil and cross each other with a folk art motif tulips. The mantle was salvaged from an early 19 century basement fireplace and the shelf of the mantle stands 7' tall. Above the shelf is a inlayed hand carved sheath of wheat measuring over 2' tall.

The back side of the fireplace also has a cooking fireplace made of stone.

The chimney houses 2 flues for the heat vent of the house. The chimney protrudes through the roof and goes 5' above the ridge line and is copper flashed.
