Build a wood fire in a fireplace by following this guide.Whether it is a gentle glow on a romantic evening or a cheerful crackle on a wintry afternoon, nothing can add to the mood of a room like a wood fire in a fireplace. Architects are still designing homes with fireplaces, even though open fires are no longer needed to keep a house warm.
Take the largest log and place it at the back of the fireplace next to the bricks. This is called the back log.
Place a small log diagonally across the back and fore logs. Light the newspaper and kindling pile.
