The Mohave

Mohave Fireplace This wide and tall fireplace design offers curved seating and complementing curved side extensions. The 40" wide arched firebox is flanked by 32" wide arched wood storage voids. The lower shelves over the voids are 54" tall. The angled and narrowed chimney has a 4" setback giving the structure a mantel across the front. This fireplace can be built as designed to a 20' width or you can remove the left and right extensions for a 12'8" total width. This is a very versatile design that is easily modifiable. The overall height of this design is 11'8", which is great if you're needing to get above a patio or pergola roof line. The chimney height can be decreased as well for a shorter fireplace. With rough materials estimated at less than $1,000, this is a huge fireplace at a budget cost. If you want a beautiful design with stylish lines and lots of character, this is the one for you.
