Hello, My husband and I purchased a home approximately a year ago. We have a "hook-up" for a stove in our living room. There is a pipe surrounded by bricks, which cover 3/4 of the wall (floor to ceiling) and there is a tile insert in the floor (where the stove would stand). The chimney/flue system is located on the outside of our home- there is a large brick column (with access to the inside of the flue/chimney system) which runs up the outside. We are debating whether to buy a stove or try to install a gas fireplace. We are happy to say, we live on the same property as the location of a natural gas well, so we have a $50/mo. gas bill. We have central heating which uses the gas, so we are basically looking for something nice for entertainment purposes. Hope you can guide us in the right direction. Thanks!
