The MCM swap is complete. Upon returning from Indianapolis last night, a bit of patience was needed for the pouring rain to subside. Then I was finally able to construct our new Preway fireplace on our front porch. I have always drooled over having one of these to use outside for our outdoor firepit.
DWR is selling the Malm brand for $1,500, gulp. The Preway's on the other hand, are hit and miss, a google image search shows no shortage of eye candy.
I am still geeking out that we acquired a white one, color at it's purest, and for now a nice contrast to the dark grey color of the house. Many thanks to Baz over at Atomic Indy for the swap. I'm sure he was up all night placing his Maragret Wenstrup pieces in various configurations around his Atomic Ranch.
For the time being I'm really digging the dominant appearance it has from street view and the periscoping flue as it sits in front of the house. The fireplace came with all the necessary components to install indoors and vent through a wall or roof. I envision that we'll move the new firepit to our back patio area shortly. For the next few days. . . .the neighbors will just have to learn to like it.
