COASTROAD Hearth & Patio
It appears to be a manufactured wood burning fireplace. You can see the damper pull at the top of the fireplace opening.

What is is about this fireplace that is appealing? This exact fireplace could be fitted with gas logs, if you wanted.

I'd suggest you find you local National Fireplace Institute specialist to answer your questions:

Or you can just send me a message. : )

What are the bookshelves made of?
   Comment   January 5, 2014

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The massive, built-in bookcase is a feature that anchors the far wall spanning the entire great room and connects the entire open living space. Originally, Schultz had intended to use traditional Japanese Shoji screens to conceal the books, but as the project progressed it was decided that the shelves should remain open.
