    Yeah , Avalon Olympic ..........Now you can get them 8+ hour burn time you were talking about. Plus you have the extra room for wood coal and not have to fight for space with the reload of logs. Nice install . I have a feeling your going to love it.

    Very nice RB. The stove looks perfect in it's new spot. Cool widescreen shot in the background. What's the movie with Adolph?

    I thought the kraft paper on attic insulation was supposed to face the warm side of house?

    I am WB3LHJ, but have not be on the air since my 2 meter was stolen about 10 years ago. In some ways, the net and cell phones have ruined (or fixed) things!

    Actually, my first ISP was a Ham and lots of hams did R&D on the internet and cell phone stuff......I used to enjoy making up giany quad antennas and long wires for low freq - fun to make something up and then talk to folks far away....but I could not compete in the battle of the Towers!

    Back in high school, in the dark ages, Hams were everywhere. After we handed in our test papers in General Science class one time the teacher announced that during the test he had tapped out all of the answers on his desk in Morse during the test.

    Not a one of the Hams in the room had picked up on it. And they were sick about it.

    That is a big stove! I like the special hearth and good job with the install pictures. That insulation is upside down. If you're interested PM me and I'll tell you the things to help fix the attic insulation. My educated guess, that R38 is acting more like R18 in its current state, I think I see three items. But, with that big stove fixing the situation may make your house too hot!
