Before the big outdoor fireplace trend was in full gear I designed probably about one fireplace a year ( thank goodness )
During that time all the fireplaces that I designed and installed were wood fired and most were Rumford based designed.
With a good public education program now in place by Burning Issues.com and the Bay Area Air Quality Board we are now offering conversions to our clients to change over their polluting wood fireplaces to natural gas.
Here is one of my earliest outdoor fireplace designs. It was for a very cool old historical Spanish colonial house in Northern California that at one time was a brothel and a secret mobster gambling house.
As you might be able to tell from the photography, this photo was taken years before digital technology. .. I guess that will clue you in to how long I've been at this .
Nice to know it's up for an environmental upgrade.
