Here, between the living room windows is the area where the fireplace is located. (If you look very closely you can see Michael's arm in the fireplace...a little spooky looking but he was actually nailing the plywood in from the outside.)
Because the fireplace is a gas (propane) unit, it needed to be vented.
After the exterior "doghouse" was finished, the fireplace could finally be inserted. Flat stone that we
have been collecting from around the property, will bedeck the new fireplace from floor to ceiling.
The new fireplace housing will be shingled like the rest of the exterior of the house
and will blend right in.
On my walk through the meadow yesterday, I couldn't help but be amazed by how colorful the land
has become in the last week. This Box Elder is so striking against the blue autumn sky.
