Historically Sympathetic Restoration, Renovations, and Additions

This Old Stone House, originally heated with wood stoves, had no fireplaces.

A Rumford Fireplace with reclined wood mantel was created & added.

This new fireplace is similar to the fireplaces that would have been built,

if the original house would have had fireplaces, instead of wood stoves.
