    Question:

    I have an old house with a masonry fireplace that was damaged in the Northridge earthquake.

    I am interested in installing some kind of a "pre-fab" metal fire box but the opening is an odd size.
    Do you know where I can find something that will work?
    Do you know of anyone who does custom sizes or can modify an existing size so it will work?



    Answer:

    I don't know of custom sizes, however most people are replacing these fireboxes with masonry ones designed for just that. There is a chimney sweep supply company called Copperfield (every sweep knows about them), which handles some of these units. I'm not sure if these are metal of masonry.

    The typical metal heatform fireplaces are designed to be built-in before the fireplace constructions..and this is why you are having a tough time with the fit.

    One company that might be able to help with a unit like this is Kozy-Heat..... http://www.kozyheat.com
