    Thanx Dennis! When I had laid the tile I thought it didn't come out well but everyone here disagreed with that opinion! It was my 1st attempt at tiling and hearth building in general. I researched everything to death and also inquired here and it all came together. Glad to be active again at Hearth.com I sure do enjoy the people here! Have you been burning in Michigan? Here right now it is 65 degrees and breezy but overcast and muggy..

    Ray, it was 48 when we went to bed and 65 when we got up this morning. Feels like spring again. Got lots of rain so things are wet. We have had many fires in the stove so far though as we went through a couple chilly periods.

    I have been pleased with how easy the stove is to run and how even the heat it puts out...even thou its in a small room. My home is around 2500sqft but is all wrong for a wood stove...chopped up and the stove is in a small room. I run fans and someday I hope to put in a vent fan in the attic to move the air to the back of the house. I have mild winters, so its hard to keep it from getting the room too hot. There are some issues I have had with the stove that I thought a higher end stove shouldnt have had, but I am happy so far. Any problems with your stove?

    I remember how excited you were when you put it in, glad everything worked out. It's funny how excited woodburners get when they are about to use their stove for the first time or the 20th time. Looks great on the hearth!

    You couldn't be more right! I had a fire going this morning but I had to let it burn out because it turned out to be a beautiful day here, I still have a couple windows open and the fire has been out for more than 8 hours! Setup looks great Ray, happy burning....... :)

    No problems so far.. It heats this house well so far.. What problems did you encounter? Not much to go wrong with these stoves.

    Just quality control issues....lots of sloppy welds and slag. Had to grind alot off to get the boost air manifold to even fit right. Gasket was falling off when I opened the door so I had the installer glue it back in....just little things like that... Puts off good heat thou...

    Thanx dylskee your stove is a beauty too! Saw the Woodstocks last Fall at the open house and was impressed with the quality and the pride the stove builders took in their work! Had a small fire to take the chill off this AM and later it got close to 70 here! Right now it is 61 degrees! Crazy weather this time of year!

    Hmm I think I remember that.. Hope that will be your only issues! My house is 1632 sq. ft. with many windows and so far no problem keeping it 75 degrees but my layout is very good for heat circulation. With fans you can probably get better heat distribution..

    Good Luck!
