    I am looking for options for an existing 2 sided (see thru) masonry fireplace with the following dimensions:
    W 29 7/8"
    H 24 5/8"
    D 32 7/8"
    There is a single flue ~ 10 x 10 inches
    Prefer gas insert or stove
    There doesn't appear to be any products on the market that I can use to preserve the see-thru function.
    I was told venting would be a problem with back to back inserts.
    Does anyone have any suggestions or how have people dealt with this in the past?

    Thanks for the reply but unfortunately that will not fit as it is too wide and also is not designed as a masonry insert.

    Arrrg, my parents had one of those. I don't think anyone makes a good solution for these. You might have to put in a single insert and a nice glass door on the back side. You could paint the glass black to hide the ugly.

    This topic has come up before. Do a forum search on "double sided fireplace" and see if anyone has any good info.

    Good luck in your search!
