    Hi people.

    I am a territory manager for an outdoor kitchen manufacturer. Primarily I deal with various home builders and we handle all of their outdoor kitchen projects on new home builds. Recently my company has made the decision to move into indoor fireplaces within the same market. I know nothing about indoor fireplace...direct vent, b-vent, vent free....my head hurts! Not to mention building codes. Can anyone suggest an information source on indoor fireplaces? A "fireplace 101" if you will. Thanks in advance.

    Also, your region is important. There tends to be differences in terms of what is commonly used - Souhern Ca., for instance is often gas logs in wood fireplaces or B-Vent, which up here in cold country, Direct Vent/

    You can find a lot of info here in the Q and A section and some intro in the articles area:

    Old Native Guy, Your best direction would be to post where you are located (city and State). Someone can then direct you to a local wholesale distributor who can discuss your local market situation, product trends,and provide training. Most wholesale distributors will sell you product at low qty's or even one at a time to get you started.
