Hey all. Im new to the scene so Ill be bombarding you all with questions sooner or later. I just installed a wood burning fire place and have had a number of successfull fires. The trim work is not done on it yet but I couldnt resist firing it up. My parents were big time out doors type when I was a kid so the sound and smell of a wood fire brings all those memories back. My wife thinks Im nuts, but I can sit on the couch and just stare at that fire for hours. I talked her into buying it to help heat the front part of the house and shed off some of the sky rocketing expense of natural gas. So, thats my short story and Im glad to be here.
