comment Can I burn wood in this fireplace?
I have spoken with a chimney expert in the area and he's assured me that only one type of flue can be attached to the fireplace, and that it is safe to use for wood. Thanks!

To answer your question about local providers, I'm not sure to be completely honest. I will check Angie's List, though I'm not entirely sure of the terms to search for.

Have a look at my comment to @mikes post. I'm not sure the HVAC guy would have reason to have expertise in this area (but I also don't know who WOULD).

comment Can I burn wood in this fireplace?
My issue is that I'm not really sure if this is something that an HVAC guy would know about (i.e. the safety of the chimney). I'm just not sure who WOULD know the answer to that. He didn't seem concerned at all with the chimney; I'm not sure he even looked at it.

comment How can I frame this multi-level deck?
Thanks; yeah, as pictured it's 2x6, but I have not decided if I'll go 2x6 or 2x8. I will try to modify the file with beams in place and upload an image this evening.

comment How can I frame this multi-level deck?
@shirlockhomes: Roughly around 2', 3' maximum off the ground. I need to go out and measure (the yard is sloped). The beams I left off since I'll build them to code, but in general there will be one right up against the cutout on the far side (for the bay window), another near the step on the upper section, one near the step on the lower section, and one close to the end on the lower section. I will try to upload a drawing with the beams in place this evening.

comment How can I frame this multi-level deck?
@ChrisCudmore: Thanks, that's a good thought. I do plan to bolt both deck bands together to try to mitigate that, but notching out some support posts to go under the bolts might be a good idea, too, to support the point load.
