    Real nice. You did a great job. Mine is still a work in progress and I hope it comes out as well. Good luck and happy burning!

    Thanks Brother....no, I haven't smelled anything yet....it's been running about 2 hrs so far, but I've only had it on low, so who knows.

    I'm guessing that you did the install yourself and it looks fantastic, that really is a honey of a good looking stove. Very well done and the fire looks so good.

    Congrats!

    Thanks Steve. Yep, did the whole install myself....I just couldn't see paying anyone to do it. Common sense is key, and I've been working with my hands since I was a kid...building, fixing, etc. Building race cars doesn't hurt either.

    Thanks Baked!! I'm loving this heat.....it's about 47 degrees outside here now, and is supposed to hit 39-40 tonight. I have the programmable 'stat up and running, and can't wait to NOT hear the oil burning beast in the basement turn on. Waking up to 72 degrees in the morning......priceless.

    fantastic looking stove and great looking install!
    Love the wood walls in your house, is your house a log house?
    Anyway, your ready for the winter to arrive.

    Thanks Pelletwood...yes, I have a log home. The outside walls are naturally finished wood, and the ceiling is tongue & groove pine, also naturally finished.

    Thanks everybody! Yes, I am ready for 'ol man winter to show himself.....but I still HATE shoveling snow!!! :mad:
