Once all our offer had been accepted I started looking for decorating ideas. There are a few things that we want that will add to the comfort of our new home. One of the first things we will do is update all the electrical sockets and switches to the European style. There are light fixtures that definitely will be replaced. An interesting feature of this house is neither bathroom have a window so I finally get my much coveted solar tube for the main bathroom. We are in the market for a natural gas fireplace as well. In the event of a power outage, a natural gas fireplace will still work and it is cheaper to run the fireplace during the months of October and April to take the chill off the house without firing up the furnace.
The fireplaces were mounted about four feet from the floor. They were recessed into the wall, sticking out into the room by only about an inch. I would guess the size at about four feet wide, eighteen inches high and about twelve inches deep. It would make a great accent wall in the new house. Time to go shopping!
