Everything finally came in and we have our fireplace installed and working! Yaah!!!
This is our new Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarm:
This is how close our new Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarm is to our new fireplace (we just put it where the old smoke detector was located):
See the blue stool? That is what we use to reach the Smoke/Carbon Monixide Alarm to turn it off every five minutes while the fire is burning.
Actually it doesn't go off anymore, however, the first few times we used the fire place it was pretty annoying! The first time was funny...the 5th or 6th time? Not so much.
It starts out with this somewhat loud "Beep, Beep," then a woman's voice loudly says "FIRE, FIRE," THEN THIS REALLY EARDRUM SPLITTING "BEEEEP, BEEEEP" keeps going until you turn it off. Fortunately, as I said, it no longer does that and we are enjoying our nice, toasty fire!
