When I was talking to my mom one night, she told me that she’d always dreamed of having a primary dining room with a fireplace! A fireplace in a dining room was considered a luxury when she was growing up and it was difficult to find homes with fireplaces in the primary bedroom, but my parents had no plans of moving anytime soon and they didn’t want to spend a ton of money on a fireplace replacement, this was understandable because a fireplace replacement would be a major renovation.
I thought this was a honestly sweet dream of my mom to have and I also knew how attainable it could be. I could not afford to give her a wood burning fireplace, although I could get her an electric one. The local hardware store carried various electric gas furnaces and they seemed manageable. I didn’t know how to install one though and I didn’t want my parents to worry about it, so I hired someone to deliver the fireplace and install it for me. My mom was truly surprised when the delivery truck arrived and started carrying an electric fireplace inside. I told her that I’d bought her one so she could live out his dream of having an electric fireplace inside her bedroom, and she was ecstatic and I was happy to see her so happy. The professionals did a wonderful job at hooking everything up and mourning it to the wall. After sealing the edges, the fireplace looked like it had been a part of the house for years. I’m so happy with how it turned out.
