Thank you for your kind words! The floors are "ipe". Ipe is a South American hard wood that is incredibly resistant to moisture and insects. The color you see is the wood with a penetrating sealer and clear coat, but it has no stain on it at all.

All the stone is Tennessee field stone, the bricks are firebricks from Isokern, in a herringbone pattern, and the mantle is painted wood.

What is the width of the fireplace and how high is the stone wall on each side. We are putting a fireplace at the end of our covered porch and only have 11 1/2 ft. in width to work with. Any info would be appreciated.

It is about seven feet, and there are about eight feet on either side of it.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Design Details: Raise a Rad Lantern
A little ambiance in the form of a flickering flame always sounds lovely. Rather than go to the trouble of building a fire, two candle-filled lanterns get the job done quickly.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Design 2011: 8 Home Decorating Trends to Play With
Wood reigns supreme, especially in its natural form and aged, washed, or antiqued. Swedish influences like this mirror remain highly sought-after pieces.
