Buckley Rumford Fireplaces
Firecat Rumford
Savannah, our "firecat" enjoys a good value. This 30" Rumford was built in a day within an existing fireplace in a circa 1938 rental house that would soon be torn down. We removed the old painted brick surround and built the Rumford, using a cracked one-piece throat and some extra firebrick. With some repairs, we were able to use the existing smoke chamber and chimney. A simple plaster surround and a rejected production wooden mantel finished the job and we had a perfectly good Rumford for about $200 and a day's work.
