Front Facing Wood Fireplace Features & Benefits

  • 100% outside air for combustion
  • Style options to fit every aesthetic & personality
  • Cutting-edge air movement technology
  • Heated air can be circulated or expelled

Our front facing wood burning fireplaces are one-sided, which keeps them discreet during warmer months but able to quickly transform into the room’s focal point when the kids come home from college or you’re hosting guests. They’re a sleek option that works with even the most modest wall spaces.

The single-door option provides a wide variety of viewing areas, and if space permits, a double-door fireplace expands the ambiance and heat output considerably.

Indoor comfort is one of our top priorities as our single-sided wood-burning fireplaces use 100 percent outside air for combustion, which helps you avoid feelings of stuffiness inside the home or property. Moreover, once the air is heated, it can be circulated throughout your space to ensure consistent comfort or, if it gets too warm, simply expelled outside.

Aesthetics and functionality are the final components of our industry-leading offerings. Stunning masonry solutions, cutting-edge air movement technology, and a host of finished surrounds will make your fireplace the true focal point of your home or property. But, for those of you with a handyman spirit, a hankering for hard work, and a penchant for power tools, we offer the opportunity to work alongside one of our fireplace advisors to build a truly one-of-a-kind and awe-inspiring wood fireplace together.

Fireplaces Add More Than Just Value

Your fireplace can instantly provide you and your family a peaceful ambiance in your home or property, whenever the mood strikes you. And, if you happen to be entertaining long-lost friends or out-of-town relatives, what better way to provide a welcoming environment than the warmth and coziness of a wood fireplace. They may never leave!
