Question about fireplaces: pre-made wood burning firebox and flue, or traditional wood burning masonry unit…?
Pre-made metal units work OK, during about the first 5 lined with fire brick, is the chimney construction. It is usually frame,,,, with a metal double walled pipe that goes up and out. This metal cannot stand up to any kind of chimney fire. So,,, maintenance, cleaning, and proper burning are a must.If I could pick,,,, go with masonry. If you have to cut some cost,,, then don’t build one or two of the fireplaces. Have the house framed for them, and the footers poured. Then you can learn to lay the brick by building a patio,,, and spending some DYI time building your own fireplace after years of life. Then, you have to keep on than masonry. Never burn anything but hardwood or slow burn wood stoves the inspections and maintenance, with a little more diligence,,, and no creosote producing wood.The biggest difference, since most premade units are the house is built.

If you must use coniferous standing dead trees because the wood [pine,fir,spruce etc.] try and get wood from and try not to use much conifer wood.
