    Is what it is, right? I love doing things like this any day of the week. A great mental diversion from running a company. Thinking about offering refacing as a service too. Working with this fake rock stuff is a lot of fun and very rewarding. Hearth is going straight up at the ledge to the ceiling, will be a show piece for sure! Cannot wait to see the chestnut enamel insert in there with the mantle and fire burning!

    Looking good. I wish there was a stove store that nice in this area. I would definitely be a customer.

    Best of luck.

    For those stove owners who refuse to use Wi-Fi T-stats you can hook up a rotary dial telephone and landline to the stove.

    We had a hard time NOT opening on Sundays during the season. Basically, it was a matter of leaving money on the table. I'd say an average Sunday was $4 to 5K in receipts in 4 hours (12-4) we were open. Today, that would equate to about double that or more. Sell two stoves and an installation and a few accessories and you are there!

    Of course, we had the benefit of 15+ years of building up customers by that time....hard to say what a newer store would look like.
