Inglenook Chimneys

Large open fires or "Inglenook Fireplaces" as they are often called are a popular focal point. If you want to have a large open fireplace, it is important for the chimney to be designed properly with a suitable gather and a flue size that is correctly calculated to match the fireplace area.
