At least once in my life, I'd like to live somewhere with a fire place like this.


  1. If you live someplace & have a fireplace like that you probably NEED it.

    After my 13 year vacation in the upper mid-west I see real winters (like where you'd need that fireplace) as regularly scheduled natural disasters.

  2. That's one impressive fireplace. The WWM has a very efficient wood burning fireplace with a blower and a 200 page operator's manual. But it's nowhere as cool as this one.

    1. The old Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite Valley has a big one like that. An amazingly small fire in a well designed fireplace like that one radiates a surprisingly large amount of heat.

  3. What you want is a Count Rumford fireplace. Its design maximizes the radiant heat derived from the flame.
