Double sided fireplace with two chairs in sitting room, a faux cowhide rug and a glass table. Unless they tell me a gas fireplace is impossible. Gotta have a modern firebox in the house!

Stûv fireplace 21/85

Modern fireplace with firewood log storage discreet alcove; storage below minimal steel hearth.great contrast between the logs and clean cut lines of the stove

I love the fireplace with the charcoal but I do not like the floors! I like dark wood

The ceiling at the fire place will be something like 14 feet. I think a beautiful mantle topped by painted sheetrock is realistic budget-wise.
