Missy I looked at your blog and you are one lucky lady.
My question is, are you going to do anything with that tall black fireplace thing? I have one in the bowels of my house, and I don't know if I should have some sort of plan for it...I wish it wasn't there! Will you keep yours, or what?
Awh, thanks. It's a dinky lil' thing, but it'll be home for awhile and that will be nice.
But as far as the wood stove, it's outta there. I think they are great, at our last house I built a huge mantel around it, so it was kind of like a walk in fireplace. But this one has got to go. The brick around it is 5 ' x 5' ad our living room is only 13' x 15', so it takes up sooo much space, so I'm just ripping it out. Plus, our homeowners insurance goes down with it gone!
