    No pics handy, but have a large open wood burning fireplace, and the most helpful purchase I have made to date to make my wood burning more "efficient" was to buy the grate wall of fire fireplace grate. In short, the grate allows the hottest part of the fire (all of the embers at the bottom) to stand vertically and blast heat out and not up. I say "economical" because any open fireplace is probably less efficient than just keeping the flue shut and the central heat on. But for one heck of a warm fire, take a look at this grate - I can honestly say this significantly increases the amount of heat radiated into the room versus my old traditional grate setup. It also looks nicer. I am a weekend warrior, but still burn through 3/4 of a cord a winter and absolutely love this addition.

    We cheat and have gas, but it's nice to just be able to walk over, flip a switch, and have a fire. There's a furry ornament at our house, too (another death row rescue.)

    Having grown up in a house with a fireplace and most of my homes as an adult had a fireplace, I thought when we moved to NJ we'd skip the fireplace. Wrong move. Even though I am completely incapable of building a fire, even with a NG fire starter, a fireplace just adds something to the home. The first thing I instantly missed in our NJ home, because of the timing of when we moved, where do we hang the Christmas stockings? D'oh

    Now that I'm looking for a new home for myself, if the house doesn't have a fireplace, I'm going to build at least a fake one. Whether it's NG, propane or electric I'm going to have something.

    I don't blame you. There's something about a fire going in the middle of winter with snow outside that's just so so nice.

    This is as close as it gets to a fireplace at our house.
