    An open fireplace is awesome to have. We had one where I grew up and I really miss that.

    I really like the idea of a round or square hearth open on all sides in the middle, with a funnel shaped chimney coming down from the ceiling I imagine. Just imagine to out some benches or, better yet, easy chairs around that.

    That's my dream too. A log cabin out in the middle of nowhere with that kind of a fireplace. Oh man, maybe one day if I work hard enough. I want to get away from city degeneracy, I'm a hermit like that

    That's exactly what I'm talking about.

    A few years ago my shop was part of small museum complex. In this complex there was origanal log cabin that had been moved there. The hearth was complete with a built in wood fired oven. Since I had keys to building we would go there sometimes when it was closed and cook on the fire. It was very relaxing and fun thing to do.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    How different is it to cook on open fire? Proper, every day household cooking then, not just doing some BBQ or making coffee. I know that the advent of the iron stove was the reason that all then present Western cook books either went out of print or were totally rewritten.

    You have to pay more attention, sionce you can't jjust set a temp and cook for XX minutes.

    For the things I generally cook, I don't care miuch, I often cook in the backyard fire pit anyway, so I'm used to it.

    I would think baking on a every day basis would be a bit more laborious. Something tells me though if you did not know any different then it would be no big deal.

    To me food cooked and prepared over a wood fire taste much better for some reason. It might be the extra care taken or the slight smokey flavor.

    We have a hearth with bricks going all the way up to the ceiling. We use it every day in the winter, and we love it. It has become somewhat of a tradition in our family. There is nothing else you can do to your home to make it more comfortable and homey than to have a fire place and use it regularly. Our fireplace is in the dining room/kitchen area, so my wife is able to cook in front of the fire, and we eat dinner by the fire. And on cold nights, my wife and I like to sit with our backs to the fire to warm up.
    I'm always on the lookout for good firewood. When we go the the park, I often put logs that I find in the stroller or wagon, take them home, and chop them with a sledge hammer and wedge. We never pay for firewood. If you want to love your home I suggest you get the fireplace, and make it a habit to use it.

    I heat with wood stove wherever I rent in the country. I don't own...maybe some day. But where I am now has a large fireplace but I have it blocked off at the damper to keep the heat from going to the sky.

    I use a 'package' of insulation. Just kept it in the plastic wrap and tucked it up over the damper. The rock work is so large that it actually is in the front room and the kitchen where my wood stove is. I also have a Monarch wood cook stove.

    I have cooked for over 100 on a fire pit, a wood stove, a fireplace or what have you. I really don't want to cook for that many but I have. It can get to -40 F here, and usually does twice each winter.

    Since my health has waned, I did add a propane heater which I run off of 30 lb tank, also my clothes dryer. But the stove is always going, as it is now.

    Well, I'm rambling.

    I have never been able to cook, but I do have a marble fireplace thing (yet to actually use it). I eat out for all of my meals, the girl who I have yet to actually tell how I feel about her, works at a resturant by my house, so I go there a lot.
