    Many a cold Chiangmai Night I have longed for a fireplace. I think it's a great idea!

    In our fruitless search for ordinary brick we actually found a small shop that has a huge supply of firebrick, including arch firebricks. When we asked why the owner said, "So Germans can build fireplaces...."

    This could be sufficient...

    Those bioethnol decorative fire place are very popular actually...


    No chimney, can move it indoor or outdoor...

    Many shapes, many suppliers, google knows about bioethanol decorative fireplace















    flame ambient fireplace

    product id 120-2978
    Breakthrough innovation lets you add a sleek, modern fireplace without gas line or chimney. It is perfectly safe for any indoor environment with its odorless, ventless operation that emits no smoke. The flame burns with bio-ethanol fuel, available at any local hardware store. 1-litre of fuel burns for 3-5 hours. Installs easily, just like a picture frame, on drywall/stud, brick or stone with included hardware. An ingenious, modern design in stainless steel.
    We recommend that the ambient fireplace be installed on a solid, fireproof wall such as brick or stone. It should be installed in a room that is well ventilated and has at least an 8-foot ceiling; the room should be approximately 250 square feet large, at the least. It is not recommended to use more than one fireplace at a time in one room.

    price: $1,598

    With temps as low as 11-12°C added to humidity, some nights in November_December are pretty freezing so I wish I had a chimney in my house. Just for a little bit wealth when staying in the living room watching TV and avoiding wearing socks, jacket.

    My neighbor, in Nong Khai, has a fireplace in his house. But he's wafer-thin and very old.


    I'm not like him at all.
