    Hi all,
    Just want to introduce myself and say thanks to everyone for all the great info on this site!! I have been reading on here for a couple months and decided to build a hearth and put a new pellet stove in our house. I have a newer home that is well insulated and we have a natural gas furnace but wanted another source of heat for the cold Wisconsin winters. Bought a 1 year old Harman Accentra FS that was just serviced and I couldn't be more thrilled and happy with it! This thing heats our 1700sqft house with no trouble at all! Been running Room Temp/Man. with the probe and its been great! Wife and I love the house being 75deg every night while its been in the teens outside. I think I have a new addiction to pellets and pellet stoves now! Just wanted to say hi and thanks everyone for all the great info on this site!

    Very nice looking. I like your lighting. Better not let my wife see that or she will get ideas. What are you using for your up lighting?

    Thanks everyone! It was a fun project this fall to do and I always wanted a pellet stove so the wife and I pulled the plug and did it. My head is already thinking of what I can do in the basement when we finish it off!

    As for the lighting I used Xeon under cabinet lights going up on a dimmer, 6 of them and then used 3" can lights going down on a dimmer switch. I liked the Xeon look better than the LED lights you can buy since the LED has such a bright white look. This was more natural looking to us.

    Did you do the tile work yourself?

    Amazing tile job!

    Kinda wish you would have put the XXV in there.

    Either way its prolly the nicest setup I've ever seen.

    Dont get any soot on that light colored grout, it wont ever come out.
