    Damp wood will make the glass dirty and lots of times a hot fire cleans it off.. You can dip a damp paper towel in the ashes and clean the glass off once cool then clean off with a clean damp paper towel.. I also use a special woodstove glass cleaner that I think I bought at Walmart.. I loaded the stove last night and it got to 81 in the house still 75 9 hrs. later and it was in the low 20's here last night.. Time to open a window ..

    I am finally relaxing. I still have to figure it out but I am very very happy. Got the Wood stove in. Mounted the tv and moved the recliner. Merry Christmas men

    Very good! Yeah, there's a learning curve to these thing. You'll learn the nuances of your stove with experience and will be an TN19 expert in short order. You'll also learn to read your wood and understand how it will influence the burn. Have fun! :)

    BTW, nice stove-themed end table/plant stand you have there... ::-)

    @ $275 /month for propane, it looks like the new stove might pay for itself in it's first season. :)

    Well done!

    Enjoy!

    The Upland is a decent little stove. Move it between the windows with a wall shield and proper hearth. Then put a proper stack on it and enjoy.
