My house is missing.....

Friday, December 1, 2006

My house is missing....a nice warm fireplace. Don't get me wrong, I love my house. But I forgot how cold a great room with a cathedral ceiling could be. Tonight as I sit here in fleece socks, fleece pants, a turtleneck topped with a heavy sweatshirt, I truly wish I had a fireplace.

Winter isn't even here yet...of course we've barely had a fall. First we went from winter last year directly into summer. Now we seem to be going directly from summer into winter.

Yes, I know....turn up the thermostat. But it's not the same...I could sit and watch the flames for hours, sipping my favorite beverage, listening to the snap - crackle - pop of the wood (assuming it's not a gas fireplace - LOL!).

Recently I a friend suggested I get a fireplace DVD so I did a little research: Virtual Flames, Ambient Fire and Instant Fireplace were a few I found (just go to and enter DVD + fireplace). It's a start...but not a replacement. I want the heat, smell as well as the sights and sounds!

  1. Have you looked into these?|hi|view_all,html

    They have a FAQ that tells you about them. Sounds nice and easy to do and would give you your fireplace, a little pricey though.

  2. I also have the DVD but it sure isn't the same. The gas ones are a lot easier to use and they can be installed almost anywhere in the house. If you don't have natural gas they can run on propane. Just make sure you get one than will still work and put out heat if you have a power failure.

  3. Have a propane fire place installled. They are very reasonable and give the glow and warmth...

    I went with a vent free but would suggust a vented as this one does film up the windows some. However much cleaner and easier han wood...

    Should be able to get one bought adn installed for less tha a grand. I did my vent free myself and have about 4000.00 in it..
