I am looking at an old home with an artificial fireplace. I would love to make this gas-fueled because it's a perfect place for it. Would this be possible? Could I use the existing space?

Our Answer:

Is your intent to completely remove the existing fireplace? If so, then yes. It would be absolutely possible to frame in a new fireplace in place of the old unit and run the necessary vent pipe for this new appliance. If you're planning for a direct vent fireplace, venting could be as simple as terminating horizontally right through the exterior wall.
