So we bought this fireplace for our basement we are currently finishing. Still at the framing and electrical stage, so i do not have it permanently mounted yet. But i did unpack it and placed it inside the rough opening in the wall it will go in. Plugged it in to make it sure it worked and i have to admit, this thing is pretty cool. Wife loves it. Kids love it. I think it's going to be pretty awesome once we get drywall up and stone around it. Very pleased so far.
