This weekend marks the beginning of summer, and strangely enough, we’ve noticed a lot of you are searching our site for fireplaces. Tell me, why are you thinking about fireplaces when it’s 95 degrees outside! Is it like buying clothes out of season — you get big bargains? Is it just advanced planning — you’re giving yourself plenty of time to refurbish your old fireplace or install your new wood-burning stove? Could it be the rise in gas prices is motivating you to think of alternative means of energy? Whatever the reason, take a look at this photo gallery of gorgeous fireplaces. I hope it will cool you off and inspire you.
