    Yes I finally installed my stove today. The installation went pretty smooth and it was a corner installation. I had to run the pipe inside up and then out because the baseboard heat was in the way of running it out the wall and up. I put some pellets in it and fired it up. Holy smokes does that thing put out some heat, good thing I had the air conditioner running lol. I just wanted to get everything up and running before winter so now I dont have to worry about it anymore plus my heat is bought and paid for this up coming winter.

    That's a nice install Steveo. Since it is in your living area, did you think about dressing the stove up with the trim kit?

    I have one like that in my basement,put 16 tons of pellets thru it the last four winters and it hasn't missed a beat. You will like it a lot. If you have it on a high setting it will really put out the heat but it will really go thru the pellets also.

    Glad to hear that you got your stove. I have that same stove on order. I actually paid half of it on May 25th 2008 but I haven't gotten it yet. Still waiting.
    How long did it take you to get yours if you don't mind me asking?

    I dont like to wait for anything so I called just about every stove shop in New England until I found one that was in stock. I bought the last one that a place in NH had. It was actually ordered for someone else but they never picked it up so they sold it to me.

    Very nice. If you happen to be driving by Bangor I could use your help putting my P38 in. You did a very nice job.

    Nice job on the install, the pipe running up and out is great.

    Nice install, strangely, your corner is identical to my corner, right down to the baseboard heat. Gives me something to show to the wife.

    The only thing I can see that I would have done different is install black pipe instead of the shinney pipe. But other than that it is a great install.

    Funny that you say that because I was thinking about painting the pipe black.

    I have the same stove and am geting ready to do the install and am curious, did you use single wall 3" for the interior pipe or double wall? I have some black high temp stove spray paint that works real well for painting the pipe , an dI agree black looks much better. I used that stuff to touch up the singl eall pipe fo rthe wood stove piping I had before getting this pellet stove.

    I think it is going to look better when I get the brushed stainless steel trim kit and then paint the pipe black.
