    I bet they are! There's a certain amount of jigging going on in NY too. There's probably a very confused Riechter scale/seismic detection machine somewhere :p

    Very nice clearance requirements. This stove is the first woodstock to actually fit in a normal stove hearth.

    Great job WS!

    Mine is supposed to be ready tomorrow at 12:01 pm! I'll be there to pick it up. I'm pretty excited since I haven't had any heat since I sold my old 1975 Defiant in September. The hearth is set and the new 6" Supaflu liner is installed, all I have to do is put the stove in place and connect the pipe.

    The great news is I will have heat from a great stove! The bad news is, once I connect the pipe, I have to leave to go out of town for Thanksgiving and I won't be back until Sunday, which means I will have to wait to get the PH going. Like a little kid on Christmas Eve, I don't want to wait!

    That is too cruel by half! Mine is shipping next week and I will have to hold off running her until I get an ash lip, as my hearth is only rvalue .41. Is your hearth .8 or are you going to run her anyway? If you have time, pics would be nice :cheese:

    I'm not sure what my r value is. I'm guessing it's close to .8. I have a full 2 inch of brick, plus 3/4" of mortar under that. My Defiant ran 24/7 from October until April and it's clearances called for 36" on every side. My set up wasn't even close to this and that stove burned for 32 years. Since the PH is much smaller and has way better clearances than the Defiant, it's my guess that all will be good.

    I will post pictures.

    Your going to like that Supaflu, mine is sucking like a hoover, much better draft than my old 5.5" flex liner. Too bad your leaving town, if I was closer I'd come over and break it in for ya.

    That's a great offer! But the dogs will be guarding the stove while I'm out!

    According to WS blog, 2 1/4" of Common Brick has an r-value of .45 and a 1/2" of cement Mortar has an r-value of .025. yoiu definitely have higher r-value than mine, but not .8, you may want to get the ash lip which reduces the required r-value of the hearth from .8 to .4. I'm no expert on this stuff, tho, maybe some of them can chime in on this.

    I will be getting the ash lip. Even with it, sounds like my R value isn't enough....

    No problem. I will definitely keep you posted. It will answer many questions for those that have a drafty, 2,200 square foot farm house. My old 1975 Defiant kept the house warm even when it was below zero. If the PH can do the same, I will be impressed. I have my doubts though.
