The fireplace insert is a Mendota Gas Fireplace. Mendota Gas Fireplaces offer BurnGreen technology featuring environmentally friendly practices such as adjustment of heat and blower output, which allows the user to conserve fuel. To maximize combustion efficiency and preserve indoor air quality, the direct vent design uses 100% outside air for combustion. Once the fireplace was connected and tested then the framework for the stone chimney could be constructed. The face of the fireplace was protected while the custom stone chimney was built around it. Local stone artisans from Stonescapes Inc. were the masonry contractors who created this beautiful chimney. The chimney is two stories high and extends through the second story loft. The combination of wood and stone provide beautiful details. The stone was reclaimed from around the property.
