I came home to a wonderful surprise! Ben installed the ventless gas logs in the playroom while I was away for the weekend. Now we simply turn a knob to get a roaring fire. Since we don't have to open the flue now, the room is no longer freezing cold the morning after we have a fire. Already we use the room so much more often! All I have left is to hang some drapes and a couple of pictures, and another room is complete.
I'm a work-at-home mom of thirteen children ranging in age from twenty-six years old to five months old. Eight are home grown and five were adopted internationally (Russia, Guatemala, Vietnam and Ethiopia). We live on an 85-acre farm, and we have home schooled since 1986. My husband is a family physician in solo practice. I manage his practice and file the insurance claims.
