I like the height you placed the fireplace at (or at which you placed...if I were using proper English). Low is good. A nice place to snuggle up to in the late evening.

I am hoping this will work well both as a fireplace and a grill, so the height is right in the middle. I'm looking forward to lighting some good charcoal bricks (or wood coals) and grilling on an old fashion Tuscan grill.

With respects to Jeff,
Luddite James

The fireplace is coming together -- and I have good news. :-) You can fit two 14" Tuscan grills side by side. I lit the fire and grilled chicken with one last night. You can see that I really enjoy cooking in un-finished ovens.

Wow, it looks great James. The brick work on the oven is superb. I like all the outlets on the counter area. Those will come in handy over and over again.

BTW, did you use backer board over the concrete blocks on top?
Thanks

We used one piece of back board to set the angle back from the mantel. The rest was straight concrete block. The hardibacker gets covered with tar paper and lathe, then the rough coat of stucco. The cap you see in the photo is all metal stud and hardibacker. Those guys really take a lot of time, but they look nice. We covered the two chimneys on the house in a similar way.

The neighbors gardener stuck his head over the fence today and said "nice job." Both the fireplace and oven are now tall enough where you can see them from the street.

I will post photos of the oven later today. The enclosure is done and the first stucco coat done -- and the stone arch is going in today.

Lot's of work; but it's still fun. The house renovation stopped being fun a long time ago. :-)

I agree. They are doing a great job. I wish I had all that knowledge. Going back and forth between books and then best guessing is getting old.
