Fireplace question

Recommended Posts

We are building a new cottage and we have a option for a natural gas fireplace,  for our dinning room. Our covered screen porch is connected to the dinning room and there is a place that just seems like a natural fit for a two sided see through fireplace. My question is, is a covered screen porch is considered outside when it comes to fireplaces?  The price difference is real for a true indoor outdoor (10k+) vs a dual insulated see through fireplace(3-5k).  Please know this will really not be used as a heat source and will most likely be a drain from a efficiency standpoint however, the wife wants it purely for the look. 

Any help would be appreciated

I believe an outdoor rated unit would be able to withstand the elements, mainly moisture and water intrusion.  So if it is going to be mounted under a roof and inside walls, then an indoor rated unit should be fine.

Is a dining room a place where a fireplace is going to get much use? 

A friend has a double sided at his cabin and it is very nice to have a woodburner out on the porch.  Many nights spent drinking some dark liquid, smoking a cigar and enjoying the friendships by the fire.

Thanks Hoey and Tom,

 

We entertain often so the majority of our traffic will be around the dinner table as well as in the the covered screen porch.  When we are not in there we are fishing, skiing or sitting out by the camp fire so I expect it to be used alot.  Below is an unofficial image of the 1st floor as it was drawn in a bar:)  So far the contractors are moving along nicely, the trusses are up and they are installing shingles today!
