    Thanks to this wonderful site, I avoided some of the "newbie" issues on getting a fireplace insert installed.:) THANKS!

    Went with a Enviro Boston 1700. So far, I love it. Toasty Toes!

    One of the things I learned here is everyone loves "Pics"

    Nice wood stacks!

    Enjoy the heat. I hope shorts and t-shirts end up being your standard uniform throughout the winter.

    You got wood!

    Would be even nicer in single rows.

    Great, clean setup! I envy your firewood nook.

    We really liked the Enviro stuff, but were 1/4" shy of the necessary firebox size. Bummer.

    Enjoy.

    I don't do single stacks, takes up too much space. If I went single stack with 16-24 cord of wood, my property would look like a large, strange maze and by the winter I would be dragging the wheelbarrow all the way to the end of the property just to get some wood.

    That's a lot of wood!
    I keep one years worth ahead.
    I get about 3 cords and a 1/3 every spring.

    That is a very nice stove setup. I envy your hearth and brick facade.

    Right now I am at 16 cord. Next year I will hit 20 cord. I plan to keep going until I hit 40 cord. I buy all my wood due to the time it takes to process that much wood. Cost-wise, since I don't have to buy or rent any equipment, it really isn't that big of a difference for me when compared to buying uncut logs.

    Haven, welcome to the Hearth.
    So, can I have your install and stacks?
    You can keep the cat.

    We seem to be in the minority around here. If I only needed 2-4 cord of wood a year, I would consider scrounging, but trying to get ahead while burning 8 cord a year would take a massive amount of time for me. I found a good supplier finally, and he's happy to deliver 10-12 cord of wood to me each year.

    After stacking all that wood nice and neat. I'm finding it hard to pull the wood off the pile. It just looks to darn nice!

    And that cat is worth her weight in gold. She's the best mouser ever.
