    Log Cabin Fireplace/chimney advice needed.

    You poor bugger. What a pain you have facing you. In our case, we had the contractor build a chase out of wood, and then use d a wood-burning fireplace insert.

    Westinghouse Generator Model No: WGen9500DF review

    I have one of those Westinghouse WGN 9500s, and so does Daugen. He had problems with his switch, but I have not. Built a shed for it, and put a good amount of ventilation, plus stove pipe for the exhaust.
