Finally, after years of waiting, I think the two of us are finally going to be able to get the fireplace that I’ve constantly wanted.
I have been dreaming about getting a fireplace for a long time now, really ever since I moved out of my parents’ lake house almost several years ago.
All of us never had a fireplace when I was growing up, however I constantly wanted a single. I had a friend in high university who had a gorgeous fireplace at her lake house with a mantel & a hearth made of riverstone. I remember sitting by the fireplace in the Winter & reading whenever I would stay the evening over at my friend’s house. I remember thinking about how much I wished I had a cozy fireplace like hers in my own house, however the lake house that I grew up in just wasn’t equipped with a fireplace or with space to put a single. I never stopped wanting a single, though! Now, I’m married & my husband & I have been talking for the past couple of years about putting in a fireplace in our house. All of us have plenty of room for a fireplace now, however for some reason the builders didn’t include a single when they first built the house. I think every single lake house that’s built these mornings should be equipped with a fireplace in it. All of us talked to our local Heating, Ventilation plus A/C company who also specializes in gas fireplaces & wood burning fireplace inserts. I think that once the two of us get it installed this year, the two of us are absolutely going to love it. I just can’t wait.
