I have been so anxious to use our fireplace, but first I wanted to have it cleaned and inspected to be sure it was safe. I called Southwest Fireplace in Frankfort a couple weeks ago and they made it out early this week. They were really nice and we were very happy with them. Everything was looking good - so we had a fire Thursday and Friday night! The previous owners left some firewood so we've been using that, but I've been pricing firewood at several places and will probably have more delivered - just in case. I may never leave the house all winter!
