    hehehehe, she thinks it's her new hide out ;)

    So I guess you could call it a Cat model..........

    On a side note, where would be the best place to pick up a thermometer for the top of the stove? I see them online for between $15-20.

    That's a real beauty Don.

    On the tile, is that grout that hasn't been cleaned off or sheetrock dust? If grout, I think you'l be wanting to do that soon. It's meant to be cleaned off right away.

    Yea, it's mostly grout. I just need to scrub the last bit of film off.

    Nice Don. Keep the install pics coming. I can't wait to see it when the walls are done. Nice choice of stove and very nice work on the tile! Came out great. I can REALLY appreciate how much work went into that tile after doing mine.
