    Well...I finally received my digital camera and figured out how to use it. Yeah, the 5 stars on the review for ease-of-use assumes your not an idiot.

    I should have shot it with a better flame but right now it had reached temp and was in a low burn.

    Codebum has inspired me. I'm giving this picture thing one more try. If it works you will see the unfinished hearth that needs the trim finished as well as the rear walls which will be done in wood panels. I was going to wait till it was completely finished before posting, but what the hey, haven't touched the project in weeks, just enjoying the darn thing running.

    Yeah we keep the pellets in there from the bottom of the bags. That's how the wife puts them in when I am not around. I put the last couple of pounds from the pellet bags in there to cut down on the fines. They settle to the bottom. Never had a fine problem yet, but why chance it. Its called a Copper Boiler, got in on EBAY. Saw a few of them on pictures here, it was about $75. Does the job nicely.

    Here is my first-season Englander 25-PDVC. It's installed where we had our trusty Selkirk Vagabond woodstove, for over 20 years. I had to fabricate my own transition/reducer fitting from a 6" length of pellet pipe and a standard 7" block-off screw-in plate into the Selkirk chimney. I think I'll be fine, but if anyone can point out potential problems with this setup, I'd appreciate a heads-up.

    I added brass trim pieces to the top and bottom of the door, cut from an old family hierloom fireplace screen, like the one pictured currently on EBay. It was too easy, as the brass channel was a snap fit onto the door. I used high temp Dow-Corning 735 red silicone to hold it on the top, and 2 short pop-rivets on the bottom. The little brass buttons were relocated to the ends on the top.

    I can't say enough about how great the stove has been, so far. It's -5 F (-21 C) tonight, and running on 3 3 is plenty warm for our small house. We use about a bag a day, often less if I shut down for mid-afternoon, and always off midnite to 6:00AM or so. It usually runs on the lowest settings, never had it above 5 5.

    Thanks, built it when I converted the garage into a family room. Originaly built it for a Glenwood cook stove, that is stored away for the winter.
    The cook stove couldn't keep up with the cold winters in NH without feeding it every 15 minutes. Converted it to Propane but it still wouldn't heat the area. Next installed a propane Monitor heater, and then the price of gas price went through the roof.

    We bought the pellet stove in October and love it. Should have the stove and pellet expense break even by next winter. Haven't been this warm in years!

    Here is ours. Can't say I installed it myself...

    Only question now is whether I'll be able to maneuver the tight space behind it to do my own vent cleaning, etc.

    Would have gotten an insert, but the hearth was just too large an opening.

    Loving it so far.
