The Meaning Behind the Name
When we were selecting the name for our business, we looked at many different options. We chose Hearth at Home because Hearth is known as a fireplace used for heating, but also for its meaning as a central and integral part of the home. “Hearth at Home” refers to not just to the physical structure of a house and its heat source but to the life of the family in the home, gathered around the fireplace. We feel blessed to be able to assist you in creating the hearth (gathering place of your family) at your home.

Why We Do What We Do
Above are the details regarding our business but the following explains the why. The heart of our business is the flame, beauty of fire. As long as there has been fire, people have gathered around it and have been captivated by its beauty. You can appreciate fire with all of your senses. Sight- The flame is beautiful the way it dances, curls and is constantly changing with the many different stages- ever changing. Sound- The crackle and the pop and the shifting of logs, it is unpredictable. Taste- The taste of food cooked over an open fire or charcoal grill has little that can compare. Smell- the scent of fire always brings with it the feeling of cozy, calm times with its distinct aroma. Feel- the warmth of the flame is comforting and soothing. It seems like all of your aches fade away. Fire reaches you through every sense.
