Cost for this one was $4,468.00 (that's why it was my Favorite)
Transform your old masonry fireplace with the clean, contemporary, sleek design of the Perfect-Fit Plus wood insert with the Cypress face. With no visible grills or venting the insert adds a polished touch to a modern decor while serving as a super-efficient heat source. The insert also features the unobstructed air wash system maintaining clarity and cleanliness of the glass year round.
Easy To Live With - A single air control allows you to set the fire to your desired setting. Operation is easy and requires no guess work to burn efficiently . The Perfect-Fit Plus is also one of the only wood burning inserts to feature a bypass damper that lets you open the flue before starting or reloading your wood making fire start-up simple and preventing smoke spillage into your home.
I saw these flush mount fireplaces and immediately thought we found what we were looking for!
After talking to the dealer we found that the flush mount would not be as efficient as the larger insert. The firebox size was smaller and the maximum burn time was not as long
not to mention the cost was almost double.
We paid $2,384 + $450 for the Chimney liner and the store charged an additional $500.00 for delivery and installation...So here we are with another Busy Days DIY Projects!

|The Little Red Wagon at our home has had some fun adventures!|
Seen here with it's maximum weight of 470 pounds...
In order to get the Liner down the Chimney we had to cut out the heatilator.
Using a Milwaukee Jig Saw, 3 blades,and some Saftly glasses this task was completed in about an hour
|The length we will go to save $$$...This was a dirty Job|
Our Fireplace is located in the center of the home and is dual. Which means in order to get the liner down the chimney and to the insert it has to turn a corner. ( NOT EASY with a double fireplace) We tried pulling it down by attaching a string and then pushing it up...nothing was working...so we quit for the night...next day...
Now we took the string and wraped it around a board to get more strength on the rope. While Todd pushed from the top I pulled from the bottom and we eventually got it down...
( might have been worth the extra $500.00 installation fee)
If you have a stright chimney it would have been simple to slide it down and attach.
We used insulation and then attached the fireplace surround which was included in the price
