Our new house has a gas fireplace, which I've grown very fond of. Especially when all I have to do is flip a switch. I didn't want to overdo it, so didn't order the remote control. A little humility here.
I wasn't about to build a scaffold, or climb up and down a ladder-this is a 10' ceiling- so having the stones only partially exposed appealed to me.
I've removed the glass door, which is probably, no certainly, a code violation.
There needs to be something, if only a nail, on the upper white part.
I'll get around to it one of these days.
