Fireplace woes or the lack of one!

on September 22, 2012

We have been doing alot of research into different types of fireplaces; propane, wood and electric. Natural gas has not made it down East. While propane sells for about 33 cents a litre in Toronto, it is fluctuating around $1.00 a litre here. Electricity rates are sky high and most people in Nova Scotia heat with wood. We had a pellet stove in the livingroom but the noise of the hopper dropping pellets and the lack of aesthetics made us relocate it to the basement. While the pellet stove is large enough to heat the house we still want ambiance in the livingroom where we spend alot of time.

However, the large hole in the livingroom wall from the pellet stove re-location still needed to be addressed regardless of what type of fireplace we choose.

Randy decided to tackle this project today since we have had no success in locating ANY contractor to do little jobs like this.

Tomorrow’s job will consist of taping and mudding, sanding and more sanding and eventually no remnants of a hole! We will continue to discuss our limited “fireplace” options this evening around our outdoor fireplace; our second favourite place to spend time!
