The Maricopa

If you have the room for a really wide and bold fireplace, build the Maricopa fireplace design for the biggest statement in your backyard. This fireplace design offers an arched 48" wide firebox and two arched 24" wide wood storage voids on each side. These storage voids are recessed 8" back so the center of the fireplace is the focal point. The seating hearth follows the lines for the setback. The lower shelves over the storage voids are 40" high and the upper shelves at the chimney narrowing is at 5' high. The total width of the structure with the optional side extensions is 25'-1". If you eliminate the side extensions, the structure can be as narrow as 13'- 4" from of the outside of each storage void.

The Maricopa fireplace plan is a total of 45 pages.
