What I want in a fireplace
Got a question. Is the following doable or what? What I want: I want a fireplace that can burn wood. I want this fireplace to be able to burn wood, but can be started with gas prior to. I want this fireplace to be able to burn gas only with no wood if I don't feel like chopping/hauling and am being lazy:) I want this fieplace to have a blower but still be somewhat effective even when the power is out. It is to be placed in the corner of a 750 square foot room. I know very little about fireplaces (obviously) but I know what I want..lol. This is to be installed in a new construction home project I've started. Right now all I have finished is the 'rough in' stage of framing/outside wrap, etc. The fireplace will be on the downstairs level of a two-story home. Thanks in advance for comments!!
