    I'm sure it would be made of appropriate material.

    In Brisbane? Winter at 22 degrees I wonder who need fireplace :rolleyes:
    Look cosy indeed, I want that kind of fireplace, a bit higher up so my dog can't reach it - wondering about the cost.

    haha yeah that's what I thought.. Brisbane and fireplaces... but there are so many high end homes which have it. On a separate note but related, my architect was telling me the other day clients of his were complaining how cold their home is. It was 16 degrees. :D

    The seat maybe, but the toddlers claiming on it and straight into the fire, unlikely... ;)

    We often wake up to mornings below 10 degrees in Brisbane.. pretty chilly for us. It's all relative anyway.. when we have summers of 35 degrees with 90% humidity, winters below 10-15 degrees is freezing. For the high spec homes, fireplaces are more for aesthetics than heating up the house which has to be the most inefficient way of doing it..

    We have a fireplace, combustion Yotul old style with doors, but set into an old timber surround. We do use it when we get cold here in Brisbane. We hit the ducted air-con button to take the chill off for 20 minutes if we need to but there's nothing quite like a roaring fire to pump out the heat on a really cold night and the ambience can't be beaten.

    It's a nice feature for those 2 weeks of the year they need it ;)
    And 16º is cold. Today in Sydney is killing me, can't wait to get back to Brisbane.
