Rumford fireplaces have been around for a long time, and were common from 1796, so this is a reputable company that really knows what they are doing when it comes to anything to do with fireplaces. A Rumford fireplace is tall and shallow to reflect more heat, and they have streamlined throats to eliminate turbulence and carry away the smoke with little loss of heated room air. The fireplaces beame common when Count Rumford first wrote about them, until about 1850. Jefferson had them built at Monticello, and Thoreau listed them among the modern conveniences that everyone took for granted. There are still many original Rumford fireplaces in the world, often buried behind newer renovations throughout the country.
Count Rumford after who the popular fireplace is named, was born Benjamin Thompson in Woburn, Massachusetts in 1753 and, because he was a loyalist, he left with the British in 1776. He spent much of his life as an employee of the Bavarian government where he received his title as Count of the Holy Roman Empire. Rumford is known mostly for the work he did on the nature of heat, and is a common name all these years later when it comes to the popular fireplaces.
Tiny houses aren't just for living in full time, they serve a variety of needs and purposes. You may consider a tiny house design for use as a guest house, for when company comes over and you want them to have a place to stay that is separate from the house (how fun for your guests if they have a space of their own, and a tiny house at that!). Or maybe you'd like a tiny house to use as your backyard artist studio or writers cabin, away from all the noise of your busy house, a place to be inspired by and to get your work and creative things done. You can also use a tiny house for a vacation home, located on your ocean view piece of property. The options are endless.
