These fireplaces were created for those of you who are looking to incorporate a fireplace in their living space without ANY remodel at all. All fireplaces in this collection are freestanding. They require minimum assembly and no installation at all. Most of them are powered by bio-ethanol - it is a clean-burning alcohol-based fuel that is absolutely safe for humans and animals and good for the environment. There are some electric fireplaces in this collection as well. Those are powered by electricity and you can simply plug them into a standard electric outlet.
