Okay, it is almost that time. Where it is warm enough outside, and I can start tearing out the old insert and build an alcove for my new (not yet decided brand, and bought) wood stove. I have an idea in mind on what I want to do to build this alcove, and some what of what it is going to look like. I am wondering if any of you have pictures of your wood stove in an alcove that you can post here so that I can show the wife. Thanks in advance, and, once the work starts, I will try to keep an updated thread here with the work being done.
