What is the largest sized gas log set that can be used with this FMI Tuscan 42" outdoor wood burning firebox?
By Will M. on June 29, 2015
You will need to enter in the hearth dimensions of 42 in. FW x 29 1/2 in. RW x 16 1/4 in. D into our gas log calculator
to see our selection of log sets that will work. Please note that you will need to select "Outdoor" when you are prompted to enter the location of the fireplace.

Does this fireplace come as it looks in the picture -- brick and all?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on April 2, 2014
Answer:The unit is depicted in a custom built brick enclosure for appearance purposes. You will have to construct an enclosure to house the unit, which is depicted as the stainless steel firebox in the picture.

Do you offer the other required items (for the chimney, etc.)?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 19, 2013
We do indeed carry the required FMI 8DM chimney components necessary to vent this appliance. The components can be seen here
. I will be happy to work up a venting quote for your installation if you like.

What log set can I use in this fireplace if I want it to be a gas burning fireplace? Can I only use FMI log sets?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 19, 2013
Answer:Any brand of outdoor log set can be used inside this FMI box, as FMI only states that a listed log set can be used.
However, it is important to use only an outdoor set, as they will have a burner and grate constructed of stainless steel and a weather shielded gas valve that is designed to withstand the corrosive effects of humidity and precipitation.

Does this price include the stone and everything else to make it look like the picture? How much storage space do I need to store this through the winter as it won't be built until spring? And how does the warranting work if I don't start putting it together until spring?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 5, 2013
Answer:The advertised price is for the stainless steel firebox itself. The chimney sections and any finishing material, be it stone, brick, or tile, will need to be purchased separately.
A 4 foot x 4 foot x 2 foot area would be needed to store the box until its installation. The warranty is in play from the day the unit would arrive to you. However, I strongly recommend checking the unit for shipping damage when you receive it. Any damage must be reported immediately, as a damage claim could not be attempted down the road.

Please explain the difference between curbside delivery $0.00 and curbside delivery with lift $75.00.
My home is at the end of a gravel driveway, approximately 150' from the road.
The item I plan to order lists at 224 lbs. I need to be able to get it inside the garage.
By Tyler M. on June 30, 2014
Answer:The free curbside delivery will get the shipment to the curb in front of your home, then it becomes your responsibility to offload the item(s). The Lift Gate is a hydraulic device that lowers the shipment from the back of the freight truck to the ground and is ideal for heavy shipments.

Does this unit come with the brick or stone already on it?
By Owen on February 16, 2017
Answer:The photo shows it as installed. It comes as the firebox only.

I want to use this FMI Tuscan 42" outdoor wood burning firebox in natural white in an outdoor fireplace. Can this handle a significant wood fire? I need to be able to generate a lot of heat, so I will want to pack it with a lot of wood and get a rip roaring fire going. Can this handle it?
By Will M. on December 18, 2015
Answer:Fireplaces of this type are not manufactured with the intention of providing a significant amount of heat. Even with indoor installation where a space could realistically be heated, open-combustion appliances cannot provide efficient heat and loading too large of a fuel load will result in over-firing. The panels will crack and the grate will deteriorate and begin to sag. More importantly, clearances will be reduced do to over-firing and excessive temperatures may reach the combustible framing when used in this fashion.

Can the Tuscan 42" Outdoor Wood Burning Firebox burn real logs instead of being a gas fireplace?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on May 9, 2013
Answer:Yes, in fact its main purpose is to serve as a real woodburning fireplace. While gas logs can be installed inside, this fireplace must be installed as though wood were always going to be used. As such, you will need the appropriate FMI double-wall class A chimney pipe to properly vent the unit.

Can rock board be placed on the face of this FMI Tuscan outdoor wood burning firebox up to the opening? Or, like in the picture, does the stainless steel face have to show because of a setback?
By eFireplaceStore on May 20, 2015
Answer:Cement backer board can indeed be installed up to the opening of the fireplace. It cannot compromise the size of the opening in any way, but can be beveled to give a smooth transition at its edges.
