    "I like the look of the legs running the full height of the stove."

    There there, Dan.
    No such thing as an ugly stove. . .especially one covered in majolica porcelain!;)

    I suspect the real purpose of your post is to illustrate the very strong family resemblance between the Shelburne and Manchester. Both good lookin' stoves.:)

    Thanks!! The walls and front/sides of the hearth are natural multi-colored slate and I'm really liking the look of it. The top is a man-made fake stone and I'm not sure I'm liking it. I'll give it a while to grow on me but I have a feeling I might be ripping them off and going with a natural stone down the road.......maybe.

    Yeah, I went with tile under my pellet stove and ended up with a couple cracks so I decided to go with the thick slabs on this one considering that it weighs almost twice what my other stove does. I like the thickness of them I just don't like the man-made look. I didn't get a chance to see them before I ordered them in anything other than a picture and they looked a whooole lot more like natural stone than they do in person.

    Made a little progress on the hearth this evening. Hopefully I will have time to get it finished tomorrow.

    Is the TV moving? If not, what will shield it from the heat of the stove?

    Yes, the tv is now in the corner so that it is not directly over the stove.

    I wanted that stove but my hearth would have been that much bigger! Such a nice looking stove! I settled on the shelburne which looks the same just smaller and no side loader. I think their stoves have a nice newer looking design! And work well too

    I had no such feelings; They have one here in a shop, and I fell in love the first time I laid eyes on it. :) I really like the metal work on the glass, too.

    Looking forward to some burn reports! :cool: We're getting close now, in our neck of the woods. Looks like next Wednesday for me....

    A little update: my wife decided she wanted the tile to run to the ceiling so got set back a little but did get the stove set in place and the majority of the work done. Still need to finish grout, finish pipe plumbing, and finish the shelf which will hold the A/V equipment in the corner below the TV.

    I wouldn't say "settled" on the Shelburne. "Upgraded" to the Shelburne, perhaps...:)

    Hey Pyro- beautiful stove and install, most people don't like the 45's (everyone likes squareness) I like it. That is a robust stove too, its a better look than the Bennington's double front doors. Hearthstone is listening, their new style handles really work well, and look good too. Have always liked the Shelburne, but we are a major Jotul dealer, so that's our primary cast stoves. The Shelburne and Manchester are indeed true contenders in the cast side of the house now. Good luck stay warm.

    Thanks cable, it's not real cold hear yet but I figured I got it hooked up, I might as well give it a run and get the new burnt off. Low tonight is in the mid 40's so I figured cold enough. I have a few windows open and it's still about to run me out.
