You Can, But Should You?

Unless there are some local codes that would prevent you from doing so, I don't see why you couldn't build (or have built) a standard brick fireplace in your home.
But, my question would be why would you want to? It has been my experience that the first thing that happens when you build a fire in a "standard" fireplace is that the furnace kicks in to keep the house warm as all the heated air goes up the chimney. An insert type firepace can be built into a brick enclosure, and provide significant heat into the house when a fire is built.
My 2 cents worth,
