Thank you, weatherguy! Yes, I threw a couple of scraps from the mantel in there this evening (that's what's burning in the pic), that 300 year old pine is bone dry and MAN did that warm the room up. I haven't been able to REALLY run the stove because (a) it hasn't been really cold yet and (b) that room is sealed off from the rest of the house. That fireplace will be able to heat this house easily by itself. It will be nice to be able to switch back and forth from the Napoleon in the kitchen to that fireplace......
Thanks for the compliments! As for the plumbing, I don't have it all hooked up yet. I have it ran into the basement, but I still have to fabricate the duct that will tie it in with the rest of the house. I have the blower hooked up (which will take air from the kitchen and circulate it through the stove into the living room), and that really pulls some air. I have it on a rheostat switch so I can turn the fan down.....
So far, I am impressed with that stove. I still have some bugs to work out of it, but overall it's awesome.....
Time to pull in some furniture and sit back with a cold one and enjoy the fruits of your labor. It looks fantastic. This room has taken a herculean effort to finish. Hope you have many good times in it from now on.
Thanks BG! Yeah, after tomorrow morning, I'm taking a break. This fireplace is my Christmas present to my wife and kids, so I want to get a good clean-up in there early tomorrow morning, and cut the doorway out that is sealing it off from the rest of the house. The really dirty work is done in there, all that's left is some sawdust from flooring (I'll have a tarp over the doorway when I do that) and some trim installation. I MAY tile the entryway, that's still up in the air yet. Either way, I appreciate all the compliments from you guys and the help you guys gave me with the drive to get it done.......

Thanks Beagler! I really appreciate the kind words! Merry Christmas and God Bless you and yours!
It's like a piece of art. Beautiful!
Wow!! That's amazing work, enjoy!
Looks awesome! Excellent work!
Thanks guys....I appreciate all the kind words and compliments, I really mean that! You all have a Merry and Blessed Christmas!
That entire fireplace & stonework is more beautiful than anything I've seen in magazines or on TV. Not exaggerating. And the fact that all the stone & the ancient barn beam mantel/supports came from your property makes it even more special.
Thanks, Jon! I'm not sure about that, though.....I've seen some of your work and I am very, very impressed as well. I think some of your stonework needs to be put in magazines......you could do it professionally. And I'M NOT JOKING, neither.
Merry Christmas, brother. Hope you have a great day today. I really appreciate the compliments.
Over the past 25+ yrs I've built a lot of furniture/cabinets,smaller stuff from jewelry boxes to fruit bowls.Even some custom millwork to match & compliment the 60yr old 3/4" knotty pine car siding that covers entire basement walls here including fireplace room & laundry/utility room.And a small amount of woodwork to match/replace a window in brother's 90 yr old farmhouse...
But nothing as massive & complex as that stonework/fireplace/room addition.
any Christmas pics of the family in the room SO?
