    I have read every article, every piece of feedback, every comment on here about the Enviro fireplaces. I have looked at almost every other brand out there as well.

    I finally placed my order on Monday for the Enviro Boston 1700 and the dealer called tonight and said that my stove is in already. I'm going tomorrow to pick up my new stove, now all I need is some cold weather soon.....

    I will post pictures and share my experience with you all.

    Thanks to all that have helped me out with some silly questions and their experiences thus far

    I burned some last year. You'll never get near the burn times you'll get from real wood. Also, loading the firebox up full of those things will send your stove nuclear. Ask me how I know.

    2 more days and counting until the install is complete. The electrician came over and has prepped the hearth by drilling a 1" hole in the left front of the firebox down and on an angle to where the original blower fans were for the heatilator that is in the base of the hearth. I was concerned because I thought this was going to be the most challenging part, nope he was in and out in less than an hour. Charged me $35 and said will be back to re-install the plug end for the fans on Friday. ( we will have to cut the plug off the fireplace in order to feed it down the hole and a new plug end will be installed then)

    Damn weather guy said it will be like 70 degrees through the weekend, When I want it to get cold it wont!!!!!

    Installers just left, everything went better than expected!! it took about 2 hours to get the heatform cut out, then after that, maybe an hour to drop the liner, attache the liner, reinstall the surround. there you have it, installed!!!!!

    Bummer, she looks great. Oh well, I guess that will give you time to get a hearth extension.

    If it burns near as good as it looks you'll be in business!

    I suspect it'll see some cord wood at some point in it's future. :)
