It's neat that the wood is stored directly under the fireplace. Haven't seen that before.

Would you be able to tell me how high the hearth is off the floor. If the ceiling is 12' my guess would be 8' or 9' off the floor? It would be so helpful to my project. Also can you share with me the name of the method the stone were placed? is that called dry stacked? Thank you.

Please: Is the fireplace on the 27' or the 24' wall? And how wide is that fireplace? I want to ensure that our wall is that dramatic. Our ceiling is that high, but our architect is recommending a 6'6" wide fireplace. That seems too narrow.

The stone used for the hearth is bluestone with rough edges.

Love the wood storage right under the hearth. What is the flooring under the wood storage area? Is it the same as the rest of the room or did you put something more durable?

Dimensions? - Beautiful fireplace! One of the nicest I've seen. Love how the stone is built out from the insert with the arch. We are modeling our fireplace after this one. We are placing ours in the middle of a 24ft wall. There is a 9 - 11ft span between the windows. Could you please tell me how wide this is, as well as the rough dimension of the actual opening? If possible, I'd also like to know how far it comes out from the wall and how high it tapers. Thank-you so much!

Greatly appreciate it! We are building the supports for our firplace soon. Your portfolio on this website is amazing... beautiful work. Wish we lived in eastern PA (rather than west side) so we could use your expertise!

Can you tell me the exact color of the trim? I am thinking of using the pumpkin spice and would like to match the trim as well. Also, we are putting down an engineered hardwood flooring called Cambria Oak and installing wainscotting. What would be your thoughts on the color we should go with on the wainscotting? We are going back and forth on staining it a contrasting color or painting it. The windows and doors are stained and I am just really needing advice. I thought if we painted it I would probably try to match what you did here.

In New York State, there is a code requirement for closeable doors for energy saving. It should be available at a local fireplace store.

Unfortunately we do not know the maker of the basket, however it looks like a simple wood bushel basket. You may be able to find a similar basket here:

I apologize, we have no information on the furniture. Perhaps the interior designer on the job Carolyn Tierney from ECOterior Solutions could be of better help.

On the right side of this room, what is after the first window? another window or door? - Wondering why the trim goes back to height over the doors and transoms? Trying to fix my own fireplace trim dilemma. Hope all is well since Hurricane Sandy went through. We lost power for 5 days. Thank you! Brenda

Thank you for your concern we are all doing just fine after the storm. We use the change in trim height to emphasize our doorway and transoms. There is no other reason besides simply for aesthetics.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to Wagon Wheels Are on a Roll
This, folks, is country style done right. In one corner we have an elegant upholstered armchair, graceful draperies and an Oriental rug; in the other, a tree-twig chandelier, a firewood barrel and a wagon wheel propped on the mantel. The rustic accents dress the space down, but its design chops are unmistakable.
Becky Harris added this to Stylish Log Storage for Traditional Homes
If you prefer your logs a bit more hidden, create a niche between the hearth and the floor. The floor underneath should be stone; I like it when it's the same stone used on the hearth.
Shane D. Inman added this to Find a Fitting Place to Store Your Firewood
Under the hearth. The spot underneath a raised hearth often goes unused. Make the most of it by creating a spot for wood storage underneath. Design tip: When designing for storage under the hearth, keep in mind that a raised hearth is made to sit on. Try not to extend the height of the wood storage past 18 inches, which is the standard sitting height.
Laura Gaskill added this to 15 Fall Decorating Ideas From Great Country Homes
9. A bowlful of apples. It's so simple, we should all do this one! Instead of keeping bowls of fruit relegated to the kitchen, pile fresh, crisp apples in a nice wooden bowl and set it on the coffee table.
Laura Gaskill added this to Simple Pleasures: Fall Traditions for a Special Season
6. Tweak home decor for fall. Layer beds with thicker quilts, drape a cozy throw over your favorite armchair and set out bowls of apples and nuts. It doesn’t take much effort, and your home will instantly feel more fall-like.7. Savor warm drinks by the fire. Hot cider with a cinnamon stick, cocoa, tea or something stronger — whatever your favorite cold-weather drink is, take the time to savor it. Fireplace optional (but lovely).
