masterpiece

This is a six foot Rumford Fireplace with the firebrick all laid by hand in a herring bone pattern. We installed the solid limestone surround. This kind of craftmenship is hard to come by now a days.

These are beautiful and (apparently) extremely efficient. My question rests in practice: what happens when the structure of the fire, built this way (recommended "teepee"), collapses - as it always will? Does anyone have experience with this? I know there are doors available for Rumfords, however, most photo representations show the fireplace without any sort of spark/fire guard (I have visions of lovely holiday celebrations around the cheery fire, suddenly devolving into chaos, as the family and guests frantically scurry to put out carpet fires!)

E.R. Miller added this to Rumford Fireplaces Are Hotter Than Ever
What can make a difference, however, is the way you build your fire in a Rumford fireplace. Buckley (not shown) suggests using seasoned hardwood and placing the logs against the fireback with the wood on its end, tepee-style. This radiates more heat into the room and creates less smoke. Even in a massive Rumford like this one!

attracts many people to a Rumford fireplace, besides its aesthetics, is its efficiency in radiating heat into the room and drawing smoke and pollutants out. Rumford fireplaces are taller and shallower than the typical fireplace, and have a narrower chimney opening to increase updraft.
