Well, I have to agree that taking a fireplace from a note of interior decor, to actual use, just might (read:will) entail an enormous undertaking; and, unfortunately, it must be remembered that any improvements you make are the property of the landlord when/if you vacate. That being said, since the landlord has put his imprimatur on going through an exterior wall for this project, can he not be talked into green-lighting a more extensive reworking of the heating, to get post-carbon?

(I'm posting this in Zero Waste because I'm not sure that we have a board for minimalism, proper)
I was watching the video in the above link, where a so-called "extreme" minimalist has reduced his property to 50 things! Looking around here, I have to be honest, I'm under 100; but 50 is a whole new level...
How little is too little for the sake of sustainability?
Fortunately, for some of us minimalists, the military does effectively teach one to get down to essentials!

Since there has been some recent traffic on the Singles board, I'll mention that I, too, am open to partnership/collaboration on mimimalist/simple living. I'm currently in Vermont, but also open to conversations about location...PM, if you wish...

Winter is Coming,
