    Thanks for the compliment ... I made the hearth DIY style and about $80 in materials.

    Yes, I used black high temp paint for BBQ's. Looks glossy when wet but dries flat black.

    I sure do but it's only a 2000 J. I'll be on the look out for something a bit bigger in the future.

    Need a little help... my house is HOT! I'm hitting 75/76 degrees on level 1!
    Factory setting are 5-4-1.

    Any thoughts.

    Yes reduce that first number and quit yer complaining you'll soon enough discover that level 1 won't work as well when the temperature drops another 10 degrees.

    Try 4-5-1, and if still too hot, try 3-4-1.

    And in the alternative you could turn the stove off.

    Yup, stove is off and still sitting comfortable at 74. Temp reached 78 before turning things off though.

    If I need to turn things back on I'll try 3-4-1 to see how that works out.

    nice! i love seeing one of my stoves in such a nice install. everything looks "by the book" to me scanning the pics.

    as for the temps, before adjusting we need to see what the base feed rate is, when you get a chance weigh out a known quantity of pellets and time the run with just those weighed pellets in the hopper start timing when the stove is turned on and stop the clock when the last pellets come out to the fire. do not count shutdown time. post your weight for the run and the time needed to burn them on heat range 1, i will do the math and advise what to set the presets on.
