I purchase a house in Riverview,Michigan that has a wood burning fireplace insert.
The fireplace has a solid 2 door "Forestor" cover that I have been told by others that it is an insert.
The "insert" has a blower and makes the actual area to burn wood a lot smaller and the solid doors do not allow for us to see a "fire".
The house was built in late 70's.
1. Do you think this is an insert or is it actually the original fire place?
2. We do not like the insert ...can we take out the insert?
