Living Room Remodel Gets Completed!
I had struggled to get it into our city home by myself. It was boxed and half again larger than it really was, but knowing I would be sitting on it until Spring before I could install it, I needed to verify it functioned properly. All the while I was grunting to get it up the front stairs and in the front door, visions of an even harder struggle with the much smaller entrance to the motorhome flashed through my mind.
When it was all said and done, my concerns were unwarranted. Having a second set of arms, and no packing material, made all the difference. We easily maneuvered back out of the house, laying the fireplace flat in the back of the Dodge Caravan. It took only a couple minutes to just as simply get it in the motorhome, and secured into it's permanent spot along the passenger side wall.
Held to the wall with a couple small metal L brackets, the only hookup required was to plug it into the wall receptacle located right next to it.
Switch on, imitation flames flickering, and immediately the warmth of the heater started to take the chill off the unheated mobile residence.
Sitting down on the sofa, feet on the coffee table, it was easy to see my concern about the size of the fake brick structure was unfounded. I wanted it to make a statement, to be the prime focal point of the room, and that is exactly what it has become.
Now I have a freshly carpeted, cozy quarters that will have me traveling in relaxing comfort. Get ready deep south, next winter I will be knocking on your door! This was $199 on seasonal closeout well spent!
