What do you get in the box

You get a small patio size Chimenea that comes in several parts that when assembled will be 15 inches around and 34.5 inches tall.  At only 30 pounds it can be moved easily to any location.


Assembly of your Chimenea

Assembly will just take a few minutes and only require a Philips screwdriver and an adjustable wrench. Just check the list of parts against the list on the instructions to make sure everything is there.

Start with attaching the legs with the included bolts and washers.  Avoid over-tightening the bolts as to not damage the cast iron parts.

Stand up on the legs and add the stack.  Attach with the painted screws, washers, and nuts.  Add the base bottom with the bolts, washers, and nuts.

Next will be the door and latch.  Attach these with the painted screws.  Adding the screen to the stack will complete your assembly.

To protect your Chimenea from the weather the stack should always be covered so that rain or snow does not stand inside to prevent an early rust problem.  Look at one of the covers below to extend the life of your Chimenea.
