Stone Masonry Fireplace Designs

Masonry fireplace designs are solid and substantial, often with a commanding presence.     Though  the foundation, firebox and chimney liner are construct-
ed of masonry materials, the fireplace and chimney exterior  can be clad with any finishing material the homeowner desires.

Historically, a masonry fireplace, such as a Rumford
design,
was built entirely on site  --  generally by a
skilled  mason.     Utilizing a combination of stone or
concrete,  brick and firebrick to construct the foun-
dation  and  firebox,  and clay tiles to line the chim-
ney flue . . . . . the fireplace -- often weighing in at
6 to 7 tons or more  --  was  extremely durable and
designed to last a very long time.  Though this time-
honored  method  of  masonry fireplace construction
continues to be employed today,  particularly in cus-
tom designs, it is also the costliest method . . . .due
to the amount of time and labor, as well as addition-
al structural support and materials required.  Howev-
er, as a result of advances in  technology  in  recent
years,  it  is  now possible to get a factory-built ma-
sonry firebox and chimney system delivered  to  your
site and set on  a  concrete  foundation,  effectively
reducing the overall construction costs.

Regardless of whether you choose a traditional masonry fireplace built en-
tirely  on  site  or a partially site-built design using modular masonry units, you will have a solid and substantial hearth that will enhance the value of your home today while providing enjoyment  for  you  and  your  family for years to come!
