I'm in the middle of rebuilding my wood-burning fireplace. I just finished busting out the base of the firebox since the cement was heavily damaged after 60 years weather damage (No chimney caps) and use. I will be pouring a new firebox floor with refractory cement and don't plan on using firebrick at this time.

I have seen wood burning fireplaces that have a gas line installed that are used as a fire starter. They are great for this purpose and to burn up any stubborn logs. I would like to install such a line in mine. I have only a short distance to go to tie in a line.

1. Does anyone know of a site that has general plans or information on doing so?
2. Should the line be installed underneath the floor of the firebox or can it enter the firebox from the back wall?
3. What type of contractor should I contact to do the work if I don’t do it myself?
