The Thor Fireplace eliminates the need for a log storage bin with its unique design. I've had to run outside and fetch wood in the winter before, and let me tell you, it isn't fun. The Thor Fireplace has a contemporary look and a great design quirk that makes it a must-see for folks in the market for a fireplace.
