We are in the process of working with our contractor on a outdoor fireplace for south Texas. WE are considering natural gas and the goal of the fireplace is purely for 'the look' rather than functionality, so high BTU's are not important.
So, my question, do we really need to go high end, or can we use a builder grade firebox?
What would you recommend. I found a Napoleon GSS42 for $1600 which is a pretty good price?? Also liked the clean look of the Alpine vent-free system.
Any comments or suggestions will be most welcomed!
