Default fireplace installation

I just bought my first home. It's beautiful and structurally sound. I would love to have a fireplace installed in the den. I'm looking for advice from any experts or people who have "been there, done that" that could tell me exactly what kind of project this would be as far as time frame, and disruption to my home.

Default fireplace installation

We had a fireplace installed in our den last year. It wasn't that bad a project and it didn't take that long. It was quite noisy at times, but it was well worth it. If I recall correctly it took about 3 days. We had a stone fireplace put it, so that may make a difference when you're looking at time frames.

Default Thanks for the info!

I just wanted to say thanks for the info. I've found a couple of different companies that are considered reputable by the BBB and I think I'll give them a call to come over and give me an estimate. It sure would be nice to have this done in time for the cold weather.

Thanks again!

A free-standing fireplace can make a lot more sense - less costly, easier to take care of - less messy to clean, as a rule, and chimney issues are nil
