How is the propane supplied to the fireplace? Is there a storage area under the fireplace for a propane tank, like for a gas grill, or do you have to pipe it in from a larger tank?
By Will M. on May 8, 2017
Answer:There is no area underneath the fireplace to house the propane tank and the fireplace will need to be supplied with rigid pipe from a tank that is either buried or framed into a ventilated enclosure. Further instruction will need to come from a locally licensed plumber as the tank location and subsequent size will be subject to the schematics of your property and the fireplace location, in addition to local code requirements.

When in use, does the exterior surface of this Mirage Stone see through outdoor gas fireplace with gas logs and burner get hot? If so, does it get hot enough to cause burns if touched?
By eFireplaceStore on November 16, 2015
Answer:During extended use, the stone lintel directly above the fireplace opening will become quite warm to the touch. That being said, it should not become hot enough to cause a burn, as cooling air is constantly being pulled into the opening and funneled up the chimney.

I know nothing about fireplaces, but am building a patio at my new home. I have a really dumb question I think. The Outdoor See Through Fireplace-Sandstone, does that include everything in the picture--the stone around it and all. Or just the inside interior-actual "fireplace".
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on June 15, 2012
Answer:That's correct. This includes the complete stone fireplace structure. However, the addition of a gas log set would be additional.

I would like to build something like this in an indoor environment. Specifically see-through on three sides, not four. The room currently has a wood burning stove platform approximately 4 feet square containing an old chalet-style open wood burning stove and I want to replace it with a built-in open wood burning fireplace. Is there currently anything that would fit my needs or will I need to have something custom built?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 20, 2012
Answer:We do offer a couple of indoor, wood burning peninsula style fireplaces that can be finished with stone of your choosing.
However, the main limitation will be with the size of the stone facing that would be used. The unit that is pictures is manufactured completely of cast stone and has no metal frame behind the stone. If you are looking for something just like this, it would have to be customer built on site.
Please let me know if you have any technical questions.
