Warming Up With Masonry Fireplaces

Whether you're relaxing by the fire with a drink after a day of snowmobiling, or curling up on a cool Lake of the Woods summer night, a fireplace is a necessary addition to any cozy cabin.

There are a number of ways to build fireplaces that vary in aesthetics, heat and ambiance, but none are more impressive than the full-blown masonry fireplaces.
Masonry fireplaces are by far the most expensive option but they can make a grand and timeless statement, often weighing 20 tons or more. In one of our homes, three fireplaces account for over 2500 individual stones.

In these particular photos, the masonry fireplaces were matched up with the perfect mantels to give the cottage a more personal touch.
