It Arrives Tomorrow!

Lifesmart 1000

Two things I wanted for my cottage, but never thought I'd be able to get were a piano and a fireplace.  Last year, I got the piano - an old, beater of a spinet I bought on craigslist for $50.  This year, I am getting my fireplace!  I just had to wait for technology.

I've had my eye on electric fireplaces for a few years now, but I couldn't justify the non-necessity and expense of them.  This year, though, we had a need for a heater for the school room.  I heard nothing but good about infrared heat.  Lo and behold, I see that they make infrared fireplaces that heat just as well as the less asthetic boxed heaters and cost around the same.  I found the Lifesmart on, and read the reviews...good reviews.  Even better, I found the same unit on for cheaper than Walmart and free shipping to my house!!

It comes with casters so I can move it about the house where needed.  It heats up to 1000 square feet, which is perfect for my little cottage.  And tomorrow it arrives!  Pics to come soon!

That's wonderful! Those are so pretty. I'm also very excited because I am getting ready to realize a long held dream of getting a wood stove. I have wanted one for so long and it looks like I will have one installed either this week or next. I'll even be able to use the top as a cook surface! We'll both be doing happy dances, lol!
