Going from gas back to natural fire
I have a fireplace that was originally designed for wood burning. The previous owner ran a gas line to the fireplace and put in one of those little gas logs contraptions.
I want to take out the gas logs so that we can have a real wood burning fire again. There's no longer any gas going to the fireplace as the line was cut and rerouted to the kitchen for a gas range (however, the old gas line is still stubbed out in the fireplace).
Do I need to remove the old gas pipe? Put a cap on it? What about the hole the pipe enters through? What's the best way to seal it off?
