Fireplaces

Our House has two fireplaces; a traditional brick one in the living room with a low hearth where you can sit and soak up the fire’s heat.



And in the kitchen a raised contraption that looks more like an Italian restaurant’s pizza oven than a fireplace. 




In the heat of August having a fireplace, not to mention two, seemed over the top for our mild Southern California climate.  But now in the grip of December’s chilly desert evenings, I’m glad we have both of them. 

Note to Self: before the return of August’s triple digit temperatures, I want to make a pizza in the “pizza oven”.
