Cure for a Drafty Fireplace
Our fireplace is a wood burner that was converted to gas shortly after we moved in.

This spacer doesn't allow the damper to close all the way to let gas out...but it also lets cold air in!

A little closer...You can see a piece of Plexiglas we had cut to size at our local home improvement store. It slides between the fireplace and the screen for a nearly invisible block for the cold drafts. Easy peasy!
