My name is Peter Lee with Teton Heritage Builders in Jackson Hole. Wyoming. I have recently had occassion to do a fair amount of investigation into fireplace design and Rumford fireplaces in particular. As I did my research I came to the conclusion that there is alot of misinformation out there and most "design" is not based on science, but on conventional wisdom (My engineering trained mind was having a hard time accepting these theories without data). This was true, of course, until I came to your website and a subsequent conversation I had with Todd in Technical support at Superior Clay Corporation.

Not only was Todd very helpful and informative, but he directed us to articles explaining the the Rumford design hosted on your website. At this point I have downloaded some on them and intend to distribute to some local building officials and Architects that I talked to during my research project. We will all be better informed about firebox design because of the work that you have done. Thank you.

Peter Lee
