Interesting new information. It appears that Summit county Colorado is willing to relax it’s ban on new wood burning fireplaces in order to deal with all of the beetle kill lodgepole pine devastation. I have a request from a mason for information on a certified 42” Rumford. I can find 30”,36”, and 48” certified units, but no 42”. Can the 42” be built as a certified unit? Please give me a call, or e-mail me, and let me know how to proceed.

I called Larry Regnfro, Summit Cty Building Dept., after builder, Fred Niggeler called me. Larry said I should talk with Rick Weinman. I sent a letter to Rick Weinman attaching our emissions results and asking that Rumford be approved. I also asked OMNI to send "official" results.

Received calls from John Norton, Rio Grande, and Lance Olsen, builder, and tried to call Rick to see how our application was progressing.

Finally talked with Rick who said he had gotten my letter and had asked Glenn Morgan (970 668 4082) to look into it. I reported on our new round of OMNI tests, said I would give Glenn a call and told rick I was advising Fred and Lance to plan on installing gas logs for the purposes of getting permits and if Rumfords were approved, even if it takes a while, maybe they wouldn't have to actually install the gas logs.
