Just a follow back from our correspondence months ago. Michael Byrne (stone mason from Oregon you recommended), reconfigured my “see thru” fireplace into two back to back Rumford’s sharing the single existing flue.
Result: After years of grief and aggravation, smoke in the house whenever we tried to have a fire, I am VERY HAPPY to report both fireplaces work PERFECTLY. The draw is fantastic and neither fireplaces spill any smoke.
I can have small fires intimate fires, or large barn burners. All work really well.
I am a forever believer in the superior design of a Rumford fireplace.
Here are few pictures to get a good sense.
