Well it has been hot lately, but still working doing some projects. Not as much time enjoying the pond or photography for that matter. Lots of work.

Here is a before

Here is the after, I just finished this today so the mortar is still wet at the ceiling and the rest still is not fully dry yet. You can see the base is lighter then the top.

Here is a woodstove setup with a big piece of stone for the hearth, it is 48" x 65". The finished floor will be flush once they are done.

Here is a outside fireplace with a wood box on the side with a interior fireplace also

Here is the interior fireplace, this is a Rumford design which is very shallow

Excellent work @RobAmy! Seeing all those fireplaces makes me eager to fire up our stove....but....that would mean Summer and all the lush greenery around our pond would be gone! I'm conflicted! Thanks a lot! :ROFLMAO::p

Nice work Rob! For the stone surround was it a cultured stone that came in sheets or did you buy a pile of stones and you had to assemble it on the wall one by one?

Hi Keith, this was all real stone so no panels at all. Individual pieces which we cut to fit. Thanks for the comment

Funny, I love a fire too. I do not even have one in my own house. That is why a built a firepit by the pond. I enjoy them both at once.

With lovely work like that it seems a crime not to have one in your house! Ours is the only heat source for our cabin, so I made sure to build it pretty.

I've seen pics of your pond side firepit, and it tempts me to move ours to the pond!
