Fireplaces Part V

Fireplace with gas logs ablazeSo we have the fireplaces gassed and the gas logs in place.  It’s turned out quite nice, and is nice to sit in front of and chill out.   Hopefully they won’t go to total waste now that it’s getting warmer.  Luckily Vallejo gets some cool nights and it makes for a good times to have a small fire, for effect if nothing else.

 Here’s a few pictures of the fireplace in the Library from back around Christmas.

Fireplace update — Firelogs a go-go

So after talking it over with Chris and good friend Al, we’ve decided to continue with the plan of installing the  and gassing up the fireplaces.

 Now the big decision is to find a style for both that we like.  Luckily we don’t need this right now, but as we get to our rainy season we’ll want to get something done. 

 I’ve found some good resources and retailers of stuff we’ll need –

  • Gas Log inserts 
  • Top-mounted Damper (only on two)
  • Chimney Caps (on all three)
  • Seal Chimneys
