Another Before and After: The Fireplace

I feel in love with this house when I walked in through the front door and was greeted with a lovely open space with what felt like miles and miles of hardwood floors.  THIS room has some serious potential.  The large windows above the fireplace brought in quit a bit of light but…imagine a floor to ceiling stone fireplace!  We can compensate for less light with a chandelier.

Unfortunately, the fireplace ran by propane and we really wanted needed a real wood burning fireplace.   This meant that my husband would need to spend countless hours in the woods chainsawing rotted trees and axing them into small pieces so we can have a fire all the time.  The man LOVES using the chainsaw and I love that we always have wood for a fire.
