Is this just the main fireplace piece without the chimney or the side pieces? What pieces would I need to vent this unit? Can I put my own brick it in? Do you have a fireplace that would let me put my own brick in?

Answer:This item is the manufactured, metal fireplace only. The unit is shown built into a custom brick enclosure. This is the case with all of the metal outdoor fireplaces that we offer.
You would need to work with a local contractor or mason that could build an enclosure to your specifications, then face it with the brick of your choosing.
We do carry the chimney components that would be needed to vent the fireplace. A minimum of 4 feet of chimney, 1 chimney support, a storm collar, and cap would be needed.

What do I need for this unit to be completely operational and look like it does in the picture?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 17, 2013
Answer:In addition to the firebox, a minimum of 4 feet of chimney, a firestop spacer, and a termination cap will also be needed. The unit is shown built into a block enclosure, covered with brick veneer and blue stone. This same type of installation can be done or other facing materials can be used.

Does this come with the bricks shown in the picture?
By eFireplaceStore on October 17, 2016
Answer:This is just the fireplace by itself; it is shown in the brick enclosure as a design suggestion.

Do you also have instructions on framing in the firebox and putting on the rock for this unit?
By Kevin E. on August 1, 2014
While our instruction manual
will list the appropriate framing dimensions for this fireplace, It will not list specific instructions on how to trim out the installation with stone veneer once the unit is in place. This information will need to be gathered elsewhere.

Is this a gas run fireplace or wood burning? If gas, does this run off a propane tank or does it need to be fed a gas line?
By Chris C. on July 17, 2014
Answer:This is built as a wood burning fireplace, however you could install a gas log set into it if you wish. There are gas line knockouts on both the left and right hand sides allowing a gas line to be installed for a gas log set. If natural gas is being used, a rigid gas line would be required to be run from the adjacent structure to the fireplace supplying the gas log set with fuel. If propane is available, you can use a propane tank still with a rigid gas line running from the tank and into the fireplace.

We are looking at an outdoor living area WOOD BURNING fireplace. Would the 36 in Tuscan be able to burn a large enough fire to produce the heat needed on a cool crisp night in Montana? What about the 42 in Tuscan?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on March 26, 2012
Answer:Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not provide a BTU specification or a heating capability for the 36" or the 42" Tuscan. This is mostly due to the indeterminate nature of the type of wood used for fueling the fireplace, the size of the fire built, and also the size and layout of your patio area. That being said, the 36" model can handle logs that are over 24" in length. A fire built from logs this size would definitely put off some heat.
