Happy Holidays! Our contractor has suggested that we place our wood burning fireplace in the corner of the great room (rather than along one wall) to have more room for furniture against the wall and larger windows. I haven't been able to find many photos of this concept and wondered if someone was going this route. Pictures are much appreciated! Thanks.

Marsha, I have put a couple of photos of our free-standing fireplace on my photo file. Look for fireplace 001 and fireplace 002. Hope these help. Here in Utah when it has been in the teens and single digits our Lopi stove will keep the inside temp between 70 and 75.

Thanks for the input, Wes. Got a picture of the end result for me?

I should add that this is my plan for the log cabin we are building on the north slope of the Uintas here in Utah.

In our home I built a 4" platform of 2x4 with backerboard and slate tiles on top. Along the corners of the wall I went up 5 feet with backerboard and then put rock on that. On the platform I have a Lopi woodburning stove.

This is much easier than trying to incorporate a fireplace into a corner. It woodburnig stove keeps the 20x24 room at a comfortable 75 degrees even when it is in the teens outside.
