Winter is just around the corner and the weather is beginning to grow a little colder with each week. It's almost time to get the fireplace going again, and a fireplace blower would be a great addition to your house this season. I don't know about you, but I always find myself as close to the fireplace as possible during those cold winter days. My fireplace is in the den of my house, and if I'm on the other side of the room, I simply won't feel the warmth of the burning fire.
In designing contemporary fireplaces, the project commences with a basic design concept. Then a simple measured image is drawn up, which then is transformed into a life-size representation that permits a more detailed look at the moldings and the carving details so that more minute dimensions can be determined. After all of this information is ascertained, the details are sent to a stone mill, and the materials are ordered (10-ton blocks are commonly ordered as a starter piece, but each project will require something different).
