Archer & Buchanan Architecture, Ltd.

The overall size of the fireplace is 9'-0"h x 10'-0"w, the fire box opening is 4'-6"h x 6'-6" wide. The mantle is 6'-0"h x 9'-4"w. We designed this fireplace specifically to keep out all of the demons! :)

Thank you for your kind feedback! The inglenook is approximately 15'-6" wide by 5'-6" wide. Our firm has designed many homes throughout the east coast and as far away as Tasmania! Physical distance between client and architect is no longer a huge encumbrance to design thanks to the advances of modern technology. Best of luck with your home design project!

The fireplace was made by a group of amazing craftsmen that work for Griffiths Construction out of Chester Springs, PA. The fireplace was constructed by the mason out of firebrick at the back with plaster sides and surround with the woodwork by David Dougan out of Media, PA.
