Fireplace dimensions?

May 5, 2017
Could you tell me:
1) how much space is on either side of the fireplace opening?
2) dimensions of the opening itself?
3) height at top of mantel?
4) is the bottom of the opening flush with the floor? If not how far above the floor does it begin?
Thank you! Love this design.

    Good questions, KM! By now you will know that the block modules on either side of the fireplace are half-blocks, and thus 8" wide. The opening dimesions are in my last note. The mantle is 4 blocks higher than the 40" tall opening, thus 56" above the finish floor, or 4'-8". There is a 1 1/4" tall raised concrete floor that extends back into the firebox, but it does not project out into the room. The concrete floor in this room provides the non-combustible hearth that code required when wood-burning fireplaces were legal in California! Now we only use enclosed gas-burning units.

    Thanks again for reaching out to us.
