    "They" told me it was more for show but go ahead and use it. I'm glad to have it.

    i've got one here. puts out a little heat, if the blower is on. not enough to make the furnace quit coming on. still, there's something comforting about a good wood fire.

    Well I'm getting a Double Wide that looks like a Log Cabin,I just couldn't see getting it without a Fireplace.

    Plus this should look good with this hanging in there.

    Big Rockpile my 4 yr old is very impressed with your deer. Thats how he potty trained, we sat him on the pot with his daddy's hunting and "monster truck' magazines.

    There are mobile home approved stoves and inserts. Just be sure and talk to the insurance people first.

    Ours says right on the front, "For ornamental use ONLY. Not intended to provide heat".

    I knocked out a window and used single wall black pipe inside then triple wall piping through the old window spot, then single wall black pipe up to a T that is our rain shield. Now we have to open windows in order to use the wood stove (due to the intense heat).

    Well this is a nice big Fireplace with a big harth.There was just certain things I wanted to fit in with the property,one was the Log siding,the other was a Fireplace.Other things that really make it nice,French Doors going in to the Den,big Picture Window in front,sliding Glass Doors front and back.

    Hey if I'm going to spend money might as well get what I want :D

    Hey I have a Bigger Deer Head I'm having done.Thanks on it.
