    Hello, I'm building a new house soon and am thinking of placing a two-sided hearth between the dining room and living room, the fire being visible from either of these two rooms. It's use would be occasional, for the ambience of a fire. However, I have heard that these types of fireplaces often don't draw well. Any opinion on the matter would be appreciated.


    You' are correct. If you intend to build one, use one of the following ideas:
    1. Use a mason that has built many before and get references
    2. Buy a prefab unit, which is factory engineered to draw well
