To avoid a space-hogging fireplace, Johnson recommended a Bathyscafocus by Focus Creations. Hiller took the suggestion and now enjoys the warmth of a fireplace and the full square footage of her living room.

No ski house is complete without a hearth, but traditional fireplaces can be space consuming. Ruth Hiller's mountainside getaway in Park City, Colorado instead features a suspended, compact Bathyscafocus model by Focus Creations. Now, Hiller enjoys both the warmth of a fireplace and the full square footage of her living room.
