    What is the size of the logs?  Are they compatible with a remote? Is the inside of box black?  Does it require a liner or can it be left as is?

    1 Answer
    This system is compatible with any millivolt remote control and receiver combination. The logs are approximately 24" wide total. Without a liner the interior is matte black steel. No liner is required.

    Do I need an enclosure for this fireplace? Or can I just put it on the floor?
