There was not much of a before picture here because it was a completely new installation. We actually removed a 70's style metal fireplace and chimney from the other side of the room and installed this direct vent gas fireplace in the opposite corner of the room. We installed the unit, framed out the wall and installed the stone. We were able to run the cables and electric for his TV behind the wall, hiding everything very nicely. The result was a modern, clean looking fireplace that completely changed the look and feel of the room!
