A Rumford fireplace is a shallow, efficient design that maximizes the heat radiated to the space by a fire in an open fireplace. A Rumford fireplace doesn’t heat a space nearly as well as a masonry heater but is a very charming addition to any room.  This Rumford fireplace is built with a combination of brick and cob and exits out the wall through an 8″ pipe with damper.  The scultping qualities of cob give a basic fireplace like this endless posibilities of form.
