Check It Out: Fireplaces

They’re headed outdoorsDrawn to the Flames

By Erica Bailey and Mackenzie Turberville 

{mosimage}Since the dawn of time, man has been attracted to fire. Once humanity figured out how to bring the flames indoors, one of life’s greatest enjoyments has been curling up in front of the fireplace. In its latest incarnation, the fireplace heads outside to create a unique gathering place for family and company. An interesting conversation piece and welcome addition to the outdoor “room,” fireplaces can help you enjoy the open air in the fall and winter by warming up those cool Tallahassee nights.

Shown here is FMI’s Portofino design, locally distributed by United Building Products, 3510 N. Monroe St. The factory-built fireplace features real firebrick lining where each individual brick is pre-cut and labeled to easily fit into a stainless steel template inside the fireplace for lasting, easy-to-install, true masonry finish.
