Back when I was growing up we had a real nice fireplace. My parents put a lot of money into for the time, and it really showed. That fireplace got us through some of the real cold winters where the gas furnace was not able to combat the cold. Not to mention that really nice fireplace looked great around the holiday season when it was decorated for Christmas. You do not see things like that today very often. Real authentic fireplaces like I had growing up do not exist in many modern homes. Most people these days will just buy the fake electric fireplaces or the gas fireplaces. Both of those do nothing for me and I am not a fan of them. I like the real fireplaces like the one we had when I was growing up. This is why I spent a lot of money to invest in construction and all to get a real authentic fireplace into my home today. I am probably one of the very few people in my local area that has a real authentic fireplace in their home. I really am glad I put the money into it. My family appreciates it too. Our house is really warm in the cold winters because of the real authentic fireplace that I invested in, and also it saves a little money on energy use because the fireplace can be used to heat the living room and we can give the central heating and air conditioning system’s heater a nice break! I really love the fact I have this fireplace.
