Ready for some quality time indoors now that we’ve had our first snowfall of the season? While snow is a reminder to take care of some winter maintenance around the house, it may also bring the urge to light some candles, make a steaming mug of rich hot chocolate, and enjoy a moment by a crackling fire. No fireplace? Turn on Netflix’s Digital Fireplace or contact us to help you find a home complete with a fireplace and you could be cozying up beside real flames this time next year.
