Adding a wood burning fireplace to your home is no longer an extended, difficult process involving large amounts of expense and work. This model from FMI is extremely easy to install, only requiring one inch of clearance to combustibles. That makes it ideal for small rooms, while the white brick liner gives the interior a spacious appearance. The high quality powder coat finish will keep the exterior from looking worn through use, and the entire assembly is guaranteed by a warranty from FMI.

Great Fireplace - We Love It!
January 28, 2014
We absolutely love our new fireplace! It was fairly simple to install and works great so far! The one thing we wish worked better was that the damper worked properly. It seems to get stuck and we have to manually reach in to open and close the chimney. We assumed it was supposed to open and close on its own when you start fires and when not in use. That's why we gave it a 4 star and not a 5. Other than that we are thrilled with the results and are looking forward to warm fires in our home and saving a little money on our energy bills!
Pros:
Easy install
Cons:
Damper seems to get stuck and doesn't work properly

FMI Bungalow-Builder 36 inch Circulating Wood Burning Fireplace
December 6, 2013
Overall quality good. Disappointed that the approx 3" air intake on the left side of the unit remains open about 1/4 of an inch, letting in a lot of cold air when the fireplace is not even being used. Glass doors being closed only help a little to stop cold air from entering the room. Older models had a lever to close off the air opening to stop cold air. The air intake now works with barometric pressure, I was told, which means when the fireplace is burning wood that the chimney draft will open the air intake the rest of the way, beyond 1/4 of an inch. I would have paid more money for the older lever type air shut off if it were available because it was more energy efficient.

By Sadie from Ithaca, NY on January 21, 2013
When ordering this fireplace,how do we know what type and how much chimney pipe to order for installing it? We want to vent it outdoors and our roofline is 8 feet from the deck.Does one normally build a chase? Is there someplace on your site
that shows the specs for this fireplace including all clearances and parts needed for a complete installation?
By Chris on January 21, 2013

Answer:
This fireplace usesFMI's 8" diameter chimney pipe. This fireplace requires a minimum height of 14.5 feet from the floor of the fireplace to the termination cap. Clearances, parts, and additional information can be found here.

By Charles from Milton, Florida on December 11, 2013
My fireplace opening measures 40" wide by 27" high. The units I see measure 37" inches high or thereabout. Is there a firebox model that perhaps has the blowers installed on the side where there is more room and giving sufficient space to slide the unit in as to height?
By Kevin on December 11, 2013

Answer:
All of our fireplace offering feature blower position at the rear of the fireplace. We have none that offer a side mount blower. Moreover, this Bungalow fireplace and all pre-fab units like it are designed to be framed into a wall and not be installed into an existing fireplace. If your current fireplace is a full masonry unit, you may opt for a fireplace insert for efficient heating.

Can the louvered section on the bottom of a B36l be removed to install a BK blower kit, if not how is it installed if the fireplace has already been installed?
By Tyler on January 23, 2013

Answer:
Yes, the FMI BK blower can be added after this FMI Bungalow B36L fireplace has been installed. The lower louver assembly would be removed, as well as the front bottom refractory panel and the access panel underneath. We will email you a .PDF with installation instructions in a separate email.

By Sherry from Paris, TX on May 6, 2013
Can the FMI Bungalow B36L be used outdoors?
By Collin on May 7, 2013

Answer:
This unit is designed for indoor use only, as the chassis in manufactured from galvanized metal. For outdoor installations, a unit such as the Vantage Hearth Laredo 36" Outdoor Woodburning Fireplace with White Stacked Brick Liner - VS36 would be the proper item. This unit features stainless steel construction and is designed to last when exposed to the humidity of an outdoor environment.

By Dan from Berryville, AK on March 23, 2013
I need a woodburning fireplace. Is this one easy to install?
By Kevin on March 25, 2013

Answer:
Your search is largely over. The Bungalow line of fireplaces by FMI is among the easiest to install. They require nothing but model specific vent pipe and they only require electricity if you plan to install an optional blower.

By Todd Smith from Austin, TX on January 11, 2013
I am planning to replace my current fireplace with an FMI model from you. Do I need to replace the existing piping.
By Tyler on January 11, 2013

Answer:
Yes, you will need to use the FMI chimney pipe for any FMI fireplace. Unless you already have FMI 8" inner diameter class A pipe, you will need to replace your existing pipe with it for any FMI fireplace. We do sell this pipe, and you can see a 48-inch length of the 8" diameter pipe that this 36" Bungalow requires here:

FMI Wood Fireplace 8" Diameter Chimney Venting Pipe for FMI Woodburning Fireplaces - 48" Length.

By Susan from Canastota, NY on April 22, 2013
We want to install the FMI Bungalow in our 8 x 16 room on an outside wall that is only 8 feet. Will it be possible to use it in this size room? How many inches does the hearth need?
By Chris on April 22, 2013

Answer:
The hearth extension at the front of the fireplace needs to be at least 58.75" wide to adhere to the manufacturer's specifications. A perpendicular wall may not be within 14" of the opening of the fireplace. If the fireplace is centered on the 8' wall, you will have enough room to either side to be within the clearance requirements.
