Tortolita Fireplace

The Winslow

The Winslow fireplace is a wonderfully compact design that has a firebox flanked by two recessed wood storage voids. The seating surface is 16" deep in front of the firebox and 24" deep in front of the side voids. This fireplace offers arched openings for that extra cool look. The overall measurement of the structure is only 96" wide, 48" deep and 72" tall. This can fit into almost any backyard. The firebox measures 32" wide, 24" wide and 28" tall before the installation of firebrick. The storage voids are 16" deep and 16" wide.

The Winslow fireplace plan has a total of 46 pages.
