I took out a wood burning fireplace in our living room and replaced it with a double sided gas fireplace. I found the fireplace online for around $500.00 (including shipping). Our local dealer wanted $1400.00 for just the fireplace. I was able to install the fireplace, add oak cabinets around the fireplace along with new tile on the floor for $1500.00. This also included a wall switch for the fireplace. Search the web for best deals.
