I just got a ventless gas fireplace for the basement. To save money,
I decided that I would make the mantel myself. If memory serves me
correct, its about $400 cheaper without the mantel, so that could buy
a lot of tools.
I am going to have to frame, right now its sitting into the room but
I'm building bookcases for either side, so it will be flush or
My question is:
Does anyone have any experiences they wish to share on building a
mantel for a **********
ventless gas fireplace********
I'm stressing this point because of the major differences between gas
and wood burning fireplaces, since it dramatically affects the
materials that can be used and their proximity to the actual firebox.
As always, any suggestions would be appreciated.
