Design above by Hearthstone Homes
Though stone has been used for cen-
turies to erect fireplaces, its broad appeal is timeless. When paired with talented stone artisans, the results can be extraordinary!
(Design at right by Land's End Development)
The cozy stone hearth pictured below was designed by Platt Architecture. Crafted from roughly square and
roughly rectangular stone blocks, it fea-
tures built-in storage areas on either side of the firebox opening for fire-
wood and fireplace accessories.
The striking design pictured below, left, is by PrecisionCraft Log & Timber Homes. It features a large stone lintel above the firebox opening. Below, right, is an impressive design by Custom Mountain Architects.
The massive stone fireplace that follows is also by Custom Mountain Archi-
tects. It features a wide log mantel shelf supported by log corbels, or brackets.
Pictured below, left, is a log home fireplace design by architect Dan Mur-
phy. On the right is another massive design by Custom Mountain Archi-
tects. It is crafted from river rock and beach pebbles.
The stunning stone fireplace design that follows is the focal point in an equally stunning Great Room. This beautiful timber frame home is the work of RMT Architects.
The three stone fireplace designs pictures that follow present a study in contrasts. The design on the left is crafted from cut stones and has a relatively smooth finish . . . . . . while the design on the right uses large, rounded river stones in their natural state. The design directly beneath them is crafted from split-faced stone, giving it a textured finish.
The corner fireplace design pictured
at right is by PrecisionCraft Log & Timber Homes. It is clad with large, irregular pieces of flagstone and
sports a natural log mantel shelf.
And finally, the stone fireplace design that follows is yet another fine ex-
ample of the work of Custom Mountain Architects. Note how the arch at the top of the overmantel echos the arched stone firebox opening beneath it.
