3 Easy Steps to Remodel Your Fireplace

Fireplace gas insert
before and after fireplaces

Go from old to new with an easy to install gas fireplace insert.

Do you have an ugly, dated, wood-burning fireplace you’d like to bring back to life? Brass doors from the 80s. Dirty soot and ashes. Messy firewood.  Uninviting. Unused.  If so, it’s time to remodel your fireplace.

Heat & Glo Fireplace Inserts

The simplest and most cost effective way to transform your old brick or manufactured fireplace into an attractive and comfortable space is with a Heat & Glo gas fireplace insert.

Henry Poor Lumber offers Heat & Glo gas fireplace inserts that turn an used wood-burning fireplace into an energy efficient and attractive centerpiece of your room.

A “gas insert” fits inside your wood-burning fireplace opening. It is fed by a copper gas line that brings instant warmth into your home. All with no work and just the touch of a button.

Easy As One, Two, Three

A fireplace makeover is an amazingly easy process that converts your wood-burning fireplace into a beautiful, warm and easy-to-use gas fireplace insert with these three easy steps.

  1. Bring in a photo of your fireplace to Henry Poor Lumber to find out what “gas insert” will work best for you.  Go to the Heat & Glo website to view your options.
  2. Have your gas fireplace insert installed safely by a local contractor.
  3. Sit back and enjoy having a beautiful and efficient fireplace.

This is also the time to update the overall look of your fireplace by installing new stone or brick facing, or painting the older brick to give it a contemporary, refreshed look.

Building Materials Industry Careers

The Building Materials Industry Needs You!

Building homes, schools, office buildings and communities can’t happen without professionals in the construction trades and lumber and building materials (LBM) industry.

Today there is a shortage of skilled workers in these industries.  These jobs pay well, are fun to work in, and have abundant opportunities for career growth.

Lumber and Building Materials

There are various roles in the building materials industry for anyone willing to work hard and be responsible.  These include Sales Specialist, Kitchen and Bath Designer, Building Component Designer, Material Estimator, Carpenter, and Truck Driver.

Training for these positions is often acquired on the job from attending seminars, workshops, and working alongside more experienced co-workers.  The Midwest Building Suppliers Association has a very good video at LBM Careers that provides great insight into your future in this industry.

Jim Andrew Recognized as Sagamore of the Wabash

L-R: Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush, Jim Andrew and State Representative Sally Siegrist

Jim Andrew, CEO of Henry Poor Lumber Company, was surprised when Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush and State Representative Sally Siegrist, visited his home on January 1 to recognize him as a Sagamore of the Wabash.

This distinction is the highest recognition given by an Indiana Governor. Governor Eric Holcomb designated Jim with this honor for his many contributions to the Greater Lafayette community; his alma mater, Ball State University; and within the state Republican Party for the past 30 years. Jim’s business interests include Henry Poor Lumber, Flooring Express, Henry Poor Packaging and Henry Poor Manufacturing.

The award states, “In recognition of a lifetime of excellence and virtue that has brought credit and honor to Indiana.”  The Sagamore of the Wabash is a personal tribute given to those who have rendered a distinguished service to the state or to the governor. Among those who have received Sagamores are astronauts, presidents, politicians, ambassadors, artists, musicians, and those who have contributed greatly to our state’s heritage.

Jim remarked when presented his certificate, “This is quite a surprise. I am very honored to have been selected for this recognition.  It’s a tribute to my family and all those who have supported me throughout my career.”

Congratulations Jim on a well-deserved honor.
