    What a nice cozy unit you have there. Very inviting.

    The Two Harbors unit at this site is a small direct vent gas unit that I like the looks of. Looks good in a corner unit. Expect that they are quite high priced and perhaps I'll have the nerve to ask one day.

    You are a ways from me. The reason I asked is because you looked familiar and I saw you were from Ky. :)

    and... Merry Christmas

    I think your fireplace looks very inviting and I love the stones.. Are they natural to your area or were they purchased?? Merry Christmas to you---I hope the fat man is good to you and yours...Queen Bee

    I probably violated some federal law, but I went to a local creek on a friend's farm and picked them up out of the creek bed.

    Water action has smoothed them out real nice...

    I'm getting more next week to build a fire-pit by the patio outside.

    I sure hope I don't make silt and kill a spotted newt or something... :rolleyes:

    you have some beautiful places. I love your art work also.
    I have some friends that live up in Webster county, KY. I lived up in KY once upon a time in Hardin county. I would like to go back and look around.
    But for now we will stay in AL.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    Blessings,
