The log home fireplaces featured here showcase a stunning array of monumental stone hearths. Reaching from the
Rockies to the Catskills and Appalachians, they are as bold and breathtaking as the mountains that surround them!
Encased in equally dramatic log structures, the stone hearth designs that follow are a fitting focal point and
tribute to the rooms they adorn. Rugged and rustic, they soar to new heights!

The log home fireplaces pictured at right and below are part of an ex- traordinary entertainment lodge on a
4,500 acre cattle ranch in Monta- na. Designed by Ewing Architects of Pasadena, California, this mag- nificent
post and beam
lodge fea- tures a massive entry tower clad with stone.
The Western mountain hearths pic- tured here are loaded with nostalgic charm . . . and practically beg us to come
closer. You can almost smell the scent of a wood burning fire and hear the pop of crackling embers!
Warm and inviting, the large but cozy corner hearth at left anchors a soar- ing great room. Handcrafted trusswork
overhead lends contrast and drama. To further enhance this fireplace de- sign and -- at the same time -- visually
"scale it down," the firebox facing is deeply recessed within its massive stone surround.
The log home fireplace that follows features a cut stone surround and wood mantel shelf partially clad with metal.
