A selection of original & owner modified BISF house fireplaces.
Early prototype BISF houses were fitted with fireplaces that were of a simple and minimalistic design. This type of open coal fire was usually fitted with a simple water filled backboiler which was located behind the firebox of the open fire.
Today, BISF homeowners across the country have chosen to adapt and modify the original fireplaces nd some of this cretive work can be seen below.
Ironically, we now see a trend of reverting back to having traditionl fires in the home. This is particularly evident with the advent of the modern wood burning fire.
What do you think of the upgrades? Let us know in the comments below.
