Do you keep alot of wood at all times? Do you have one and not use it? If you do use it, how often do you actualy use it?

My house was built in 1988 and the fireplace has never had a fire burned in it. I have a decorative arrangement of candles in the fireplace now and light them often but I doubt I will ever build a fire in it. I live in a part of my country that just never gets really cold. There are proably only about 20 days in the year when I feel like a fire would make a difference..... it is not worth the mess for me.

I like the fireplaces, even my dogs will lay calmly by the fire and sleep. They really are pretty and I enjoy them. It would be too much temptation for me not to use mine.

I think they are beautiful. Its a nice, relaxing thing to rest in front of a fire. Its nice that you have a warm cozy fireplace.

My daughter taking her stocking down to empty.  - I love my fireplace.
We had a fireplace installed when we had our house built and use it day/night during the cold months as it keeps the house pretty warm w/o having to run the gas furnace. I love sitting on the floor in front of it and gazing into the flames.

I've always wanted a fireplace because of it's ambience so if i did i'd light it up as much as possible, which would be everyday but then again i want to conserve energy so until i can offset my energy use, i won't b getting a fireplace
