Next, my husband cut a hole in the wall to slide the fireplace into. But what's on the other side you ask? My closet! Yes, my fireplace is hidden by my clothes at the moment lol! He made sure to add some framing to maintain the wall's strength, and we had our electrician put in an outlet in the closet to plug it in to. He then wired that to a switch on my living room wall so it can be easily controlled.
