Hi all, we bought a house last year and really would like to get the fireplace in order after going without heat in the last snowstorm. There is a chimney, with caps, and inspection said it looked alright. However, it looks like the Buckstove insert was set up for gas, which we no longer have. The unit is pretty rough. Im assuming since there is a flue and a general opening covered by the surround, there was a masonry fireplace at one point. Can we get a welder to open a damper and convert this insert to wood burning? Anything else I should look for? Thanks in advance, much appreciated!
