Here's our stove installations. I apologize for the cruddy before picture. it was taken before we moved in. The previous owners had taken an 80 yr. old farmhouse and kinda yuppified it for their own tastes. We're putting back in farmhouse details one by one. The original stove was a Majestic. Ate a lot of wood and didn't put out much heat. I added a fan and that helped, but we were eager to replace it and add a mantel. This is my first tiling project. The hearth is original. I had a piece of sheet metal cut to fill out the surround. Painted it black and siliconed it into place. The new Jotul 3CB is located in the kitchen. This was a sun porch which became part of the interior of the house and entryway into the kitchen. Lots of glass, so the woodstove really helps. So far it's been able to heat the house by itself, but we haven't gone below 35 yet. I expect the Quad to kick in once in awhile when we get below 30. When we're at work or away, the Quad is the primary heat source.
