    My install is underway.
    5 tons will be delivered on wends.
    I finished the hearth tonight. Its slate tile with black grout and Brazilian Cherry wood binding.
    You can see the stove in the back.

    Nice hearth . Shouldnt the stove be on the hearth and in the house ? I would think its going to be hard to heat the home from in the garage. ;)

    The pad looks great. Are you going to keep the stove black or paint it?

    Looking forward to seeing pictures of the final install.

    I like the black. I grew up in a house with 2 Vermont Castings stoves so Im used to the look.
    I think the spray can color that Harman uses is silly on a 3000$ stove. But to each his own. I do like your green.

    Your install looks great. I agree, once youv'e had black, it hard to go back. Every stove I had was black also. I saw a free standing accentra painted the forest green in the show room and thought it looked pretty good, so I figured I would go a little non standard. For some reason, the color looks better in real life than the photo, hard to explain why. I figured if I ever wanted to go back, two $10 cans of paint, and an hour or two of labor and I could change it. So far, I still like it.

    Is it cold enough there to crank it up yet?

    That hearth trim and stone/tile really look awesome with your wood floor . ( it was harder to tell in the second picture ) Hell , who needs a T.V. ....... Just point that Lazy-Boy right at the stove and kick it up a notch.

    Thanks!
    Been a long time in the making.
    We were thinking about the pellet stove last year but decided to wait. Wish we hadn't. 4500$ in Propane later I decided it was time.
    I havent finished triming out the hearth so I will add some photos when I get that done.

    The hearth trim is just some of the flooring that I ripped down on the table saw.

    The stove is in the main living area of the house. The TV is down in the family room in the basement, along with the pool table, wet bar, and the Hearthstone Gas stove. This stove is the good book and a whiskey stove.

    Yup. Pool table, wet bar, darts, beer fridge, 42" Plasma HD TV.
    Amazing what you can do when you dont have to pay the gas co tons of $ every winter!
