Case Studies






October 2010- Maui, Hawaii-


Our Distributor Anthony Amaral, a mason on the island of Maui installed an MFP49 for their customer Ron and Beth Daniels living on the Haleakala Highway. This was a first Mason-lite installation for MFI, so it was important for our training crew to fly over to supervise the work and make sure it was installed correctly. Pictured left to right is Bill Harris of MFI, Anthony Amaral and his Grandson and Son, all mason’s by trade, who built the Mason-lite and liked the experience.

Relaxing by the fire

The commute home was longer than usual and the rainy weather didn’t improve the situation. As you rush in the house, the cold rain pours down on you, chilling you to the bone. You are cold, wet, and badly in need of some downtime. Fortunately, you have the perfect solution.

After a hot shower, you slip into some comfy clothes and ease yourself down in front of your fireplace. Nestled in your favorite chair, you glance across the room to see rain splashing across the window. You cuddle up with your favorite quilt and enjoy the fire’s warmth.

There’s something relaxing about a fireplace. As you sit back and watch the flames dancing around, you don’t feel so rushed. You can feel yourself transported back to a time when your life wasn’t ruled by a clock. Your breathing deepens, and for the first time, in a very long time, you feel at peace.

Romantic getaway

For the first 8 years of our marriage our master bedroom was barely large enough to contain our bed, let alone anything else. I longed for a bigger bedroom, where I could get away from the kids and just relax with my husband. I secretly dreamed about the romance and tranquility of an antique four poster bed nestled in front of a cozy fireplace.

My dream came true when we moved into our new home. Not only do we have a large second-story master bedroom, but we have a romantic fireplace keeping us toasty warm. Now every night feels like a romantic getaway. The rest of the world is forgotten, as we cuddle up in front of our cozy fireplace and share dreams of our future.

Entertainment delight

First, I want to thank Mason-Lite and Masonry Fireplace Industries for allowing me to share my positive experience regarding my out door fireplace.

My husband had talked about adding a fireplace to our patio, so I took on the project. After deciding on a masonry type because of difficulties with metal fireboxes, I chose the Mason-Lite, MFP-49 model. I told my contractor what I wanted and he installed it. I then chose Travertine for the hearth and face of the fireplace. The unit was installed and ready for our enjoyment quicker than I thought possible. My husband was so impressed he offered to take photos of me with our two sons, Justin and Jake, sitting in front our Mason- Lite fireplace.
