    Did the install myself with a lot of help from my uncle and wife.

    After all said and done, I'm proud of myself.

    Feel free to comment, good or bad. I just wanted to show off a little!!

    Very nice. I admire those with talent for color and texture. You have the talent. The stove looks good also.

    That looks GREAT - and the stove ain't half bad looking either ;)

    I've seen with my own eyes one of those Jotul Rangeley's and they are a nice stove.

    Happy burning!

    Super job. That's quite a change. I like the dove grey room color. It's a nice compliment to the stonework.

    Now get some fire in the belly of that beast!

    Looks great. How old is the house, and how drafty or tight is it? I am interested in knowing how this stove performs.


    And what is the claimed firebox size. Based on Jotul's website, they make it seem like it is about the same size as the Oslo.

    Thanks to all for the positive comments. It feels good.


    I sacrificed the electrical outlet but did not sacrifice the vent. I plan on using the vent's fan to circulate the air when the stove is on.


    The house is about 6 years old and it is pretty tight. As soon as I start it up I will post how it performs on here. The chimney is about 19ft tall so I don't think draft will be an issue.

    I did look at the Rangely when I was researching stoves and thought the Rangely was interesting.. If I remember right the top load was a bit small compared to the other load methods so I decided on a front load only but still like the Rangely.. Look forward to hearing your experiences!

    Good Luck!

    You are correct in the top load it is good for smaller wood but the big stuff for a long or night time burn is easily fed in the front door.I agree and i thought the same but when i saw this stove i just knew it was what we needed and it's built like a bomb shelter.I'll keep ya posted when we start burning.
