The fireplace was easy to install. It is light weight so installing it with the 3 screws easily supports it. We also bought the gel fuel recommended with the fireplace. The fire level looks good. It was installed in a bathroom near a soaker tub. One thing to look out for is that it put off a lot of heat. So a small room will heat up quickly. Also, since this fireplace is not ventilated, you need to be careful with CO build up. Make sure you have you have a source of fresh air. All in all, it looks great and sets a great mood.
