    Enjoy the heat, even on a warm night. Winter's still got quite a bit up her sleeve, I think ...

    Nice going, Jimmie. Where did you end up placing the stove?

    Remember, we love burn pics (from different angles).

    10 degrees here so the stat will be killing the heat pump if it drops below 10 so I fired the stove up on high to supplement for the night so the strips aren't killing my wallet. I love having a smart stat that will turn the strips off above 35 unless a defrost is needed and the heat pump off below 10 where the wear and tear isn't worth running it.

    The castile on high seems to cut the strip usage in half and it is in the basement. If we ever have a power outage I can run it on the generator and have a warm basement to stay in.

    Looks great I am not an interior design expert so that's up to you but I think you should add a surge suppressor to the stove

    Looks great...That room is way to clean!!

    I would either center the picture over the stove or take it down (just my .02):p

    Great looking living room Jimmie!
    The last few nights have been real warm here (Hicksville), so the stove gets turned off when I get home at 0130 otherwise, we burn up all night long.

    Just curious....what brand/model? I hope not one of those "computer surge strips" (worthless).

    BTW, the install and stove look GREAT!!

    this is a great surge protector http://www.tripplite.com/en/products/model.cfm?txtModelID=3980
    The ULTRABLOK offers 1410 joules of protection against surges,
    go to this sight http://www.thefind.com and putt in the name of the surge protector and it will give you the cheapest models available on the internet from multiple sites I use this site to purchase everything online good luck I saw the strip protector in the picture you posted from behind the stove and i would recommend a better one. Just a my opinion

    BTW, what is the inherent problem with an average hardware store surge strip like I have? Thanks!, just trying to learn the difference.

    It is the amount of surge they can suppress.
