I have been missing in action for a while here on Lumberjocks, and with good cause.
I just finished this project from the floor boards up, it was a test of all my skills from woodworking to plumbing and home theater, with the love of and patience of my wife, good advice of our interior decorator and some help from my friends this has become our favorite room in the house. Our 1924 Bungalow had a gas log fireplace with built in book cases, but it was removed long before we came along, according to our neighbor (who has an all original home just like ours) in the late 60s the village requested that all fake gas log units be disconnected due to CO2 deaths in the area. Lucky for me our 80 year old neighbor didn’t mind me coming over to measure and sketch her fireplace (as long as I brought snacks, of course) she is a delight to visit with and her home is a time machine.
The fire box and logs are a direct vent gas system.
Take care and thanks for looking
