Is there a benefit to actually building a traditional fireplace and installing a gas insert or did you already have the fireplace built and then decided to go with gas? Also, it looks as if you do not have
A glass enclosure. I always thought that was a requirement with gas fireplaces ? Thanks for any information !!

This is a wood burning Rumford style fireplace ( that could have glass doors ) that we added a gas insert into.

Love the way you piled river rocks in front of the logs - which gas log sets do you think look the most realistic?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Modern California Beach House
The color palette naturally developed as the house's design progressed. Rather than deciding on it from the beginning, Wilson decided to base his design on how the color of each new material and finish reacted to the previous ones. While most of the walls are made of an unfinished and uncolored plaster, the hallway is done in a green integral color plaster, which draws the eye down the hallway toward the stairwell. The mossy green works beautifully with the cool gray stone of the fireplace surround.
E.R. Miller added this to Rumford Fireplaces Are Hotter Than Ever
To fit the needs of clients who prefer gas, WA Design in Berkeley, California, modified a wood-burning Rumford-style fireplace by adding a gas log set.
