Well, I FINALLY got to light my new stove tonight! After months of projects I got the hearth from the cellar to the living room (Man that thing was heavy) took four of us to get it moved! Then we moved the stove to the hearth last night, today I got the elbow I needed to connect the pipe and I ran through my 3 curing fires. I just engaged the cat 10 minutes ago and it's going strong...... I'm really happy with this stove so far and once I get more familiar with it I'm sure I'll love it even more. Everyone is enjoying it now as you can see in the pics! Pictures of the hearth I built (Not the greatest thing I've built but it will do) I found out I'm not a good carpenter...... I'll get the wall and trim finished in a couple weeks, I got the stove installed and that was #1 on my list.. Happy wife and happy dogs, life is gooood!
