Dear Mr. Fischer,

We would like to apply for approval in Grand County, CO of our Rumford fireplaces that
meet or exceed the emission standards for Phase II stove emissions.

Two Rumford fireplaces were tested by OMNI Environmental Services, an EPA certified
lab, pursuant to the Washington state fireplace emissions law. The Washington test was
designed to be an equivalent test standard to the EPA Phase II stove standards but
incorporating appropriate procedures for fireplaces. Our Buckley Rumford Fireplace
test results are attached.

Further we would ask, as approved in Washington, that you approve two untested sizes in
between the two sizes we actually tested. The dimensions of all four Rumford models are
proportional and we have every reason to believe, having tested the smallest and the
largest, that the two intermediate sizes would have similar emissions.

If you have any questions or would like submittal of our test results directly from OMNI,
please call me at 360 385 9974.
