I am adding a master bedroom on to my house and want to have a fireplace in it. It does not get real cold or stay cold for very long on the MS Gulf coast so what is the best way to go. Vent free, wood buring, wood with gas piped in also, insert or full custom built brick? Any suggestions would be helpful. Stinger

NICE! Had one once and really liked it. It was wood burning. Of course it's a pain hauling in wood and cleaning and all but it really adds a nice touch to a B.R..Especially if you get the side of the bed so you get to stare at it when you go to sleep! I'd vote a raised wood burner with a gas lighter. [:D]

Sealed gas unit. Turn it on and off with a light switch, nothing to clean, no wood to haul, but all of the benefits. Chris

thanks deadeye. I was thinking the wood burning also for that SHTF winter time no heat thing.

Sparhawk, I had thought about the ease of use and cheaper price of the gas. especially getting wood in my underwear when its cold out.

I would go with wood, in the Colorado front range, no more wood burning fireplaces are allowed. Plus wood works when the gas lines go down.
