About Us

Founded in 1939 this family owned Fireplace Shop is built on reputation and integrity. Having been in our current location since the 1950's we are well established in downtown San Luis Obispo. During 2008 we experienced a complete remodel which allowed us to allocate our space to accommodate over 45 hearth product concepts including inserts, stoves, fireplaces, gas logs and electric fireplaces as well as barbeques and retro style kitchen appliances. Our goal is to serve our customers and we have built a knowledgeable staff to assist you. We enjoy working with homeowners, contractors and interior designers to find the best option for your project. Although we have been in business over 75 years we have not remained mired in the past. Our inventory includes the latest in contemporary fireplace options as well as traditional styles and everything in between. We look forward to continued growth In the future which shouldn't be difficult. Between our owners we have 14 children and grandchildren who may one day choose to step in as the next generation of service providers in the fireplace industry.
