Construction forums - Fireplace pilot conversion

Can anyone recommend any construction forums to chat with handy people?  I'm considering to change to autopilot. Currently my fireplace has a manual pilot with a thermocouple. So every winter I need to open gas with one hand and push a spark button with other. Takes like 30min process.
I wonder if there a conversion kits they sell to any kind of fireplace.  Just like a kitchen stove and gas range do.
Anyone done that or can refer to the proper forums etc?
Thanks!

Depending upon the fireplace you have there are 'standard' pilots including those with remotes that can be readily interchanged by a gas technician. I've shopped for pilot valves previously at Woodland Direct (www.woodlanddirect.com) and have been very happy with their technical support when I've called or sent an email.
