I have a gas fireplace in the house I built in 1997. It is two-sided and does not put out much heat because the glass enclosures are always closed. I have stopped using it.

I have always preferred a wood fireplace and want to convert the gas to wood. Does anyone have advice on the process and cost?

Probably cannot convert to wood. It's highly likely that you have a factory built fireplace with its OEM chimney and they must work together for only the purpose of burning gas. You can bring in a professional to confirm that, but I would not have very high hopes. It is often easy to convert from wood to gas, but gas to wood is not as straightforward.
