    we have a wood burning fireplace and periodically have the smoke coming into our house. we have put bricks of raised the hearth with bricks. We have used newspaper to create a draft up the chimney, but still smoke comes into the room and fills the house with smoke. do you have any other suggestions?


    It is best to close off the top 2 or 3 inches of the fireplace opening using a hood that comes down. You can make one to try out of sheet metal and then have a nicer one made of brass or copper if this works.

    Another thing that may work is a set of glass doors since the frame effectively also cuts down the size of the opening.
