    I just did this for my Wife. (Christmas Present) For me getting the gas line through the outside to the inside of the fireplace was a little tricking (measurements had to be exact or It would look like poop.) Other than that, a direct vent insert fit right in. I picked up a model from Napolean fireplaces here in Ontario. I was surprised at how easy it was.

    No big deal Papa, as long as you can get gas line there and liner ( or 2 ) down the chimney. You might want to get 120V up there as well if you go with fan option. You have a on/off switch on surround or put a remote controll on it and enjoy.

    Cool

    Perform a Level II inspection first. Sweep out as much creosote as possible. Make repairs as necessary. The install per the code and listed instructions. Pretty easy.
