From wood to gas
We would like to convert our wood burning fireplace (built in 1954, no fan) to gas. I don't like the look of gas inserts and don't want the inefficiency of simply plumbing in a gas logset. What I want is a gas fireplace that can be vented out the existing chimney. Is it safe to assume we have to remove all or most of the existing firebox? What is involved in a project of this kind? Also, we have a second fireplace directly below in the basement so our chimney has two "chambers".
