    I don't think I ever posted a pic after my install last spring. I ended up with an Englander nc-13 I got with price match at Lowe's for $500. Install including liner was 2k. Looking forward to a warm house this winter!!

    The steel stove looks great in that big stone fireplace.

    I love butt-ugly steel stoves, and I particularly love them in beautiful hearth stove settings. Very, very nice! I moved your thread to the Perfect Picture forum...hope you don't mind. Rick

    Actually...come to think of it...I'd have to call that absolutely dreamy. :)

    wow, that is some fireplace you got there. i usually only see stones that size on bridges, that must have been a hoot to construct.

    Thanks :) I'm very pleased with the result, and I am so appreciative of all the input I got here.

    Delta-T I never really considered what it would have been like to put in those stones. Cabin was built in 1900.

    Those are spring sprouters in the foreground. They are sitting ground level. Someone here gave me that idea and it worked great.

    My av. You guys don't forget anything. Let me see if I can find a suitable pic.

    I didn't notice the 2 on the floor at first. I thought the one on top was a cake. Guess we know where MY mind is?! :lol:
    Nice hearth setup too.

    First thing I saw was that lintel stone. Aye carumba! Who needs arches?

    Very nice

    You've done real well Kathleen. It looks great in that location. I'm looking forward to hearing how the stove works out for you this season.

    Wow! Really attractive! The stove isn't ugly a bit, especially not in that setting. What is the story with the house/fireplace? Is it very old? That's quite a hearth.

    Neat! I like how the clean simple lines of the stove contrast with the rustic 'earthiness' of the rest of the hearth/fireplace. Looks like a great place to climb into a comfy chair and spend a cold winters night.

    Thank you. It's a log cabin built ~1900. It's part of an old resort where folks from Charlestown used to spend the summer. After renting for 20 years, it's my first house. There's never enough time or money to get everything done (same old sad song), but I love it. That hearth and the front porch are the best of it. Wormy chestnut walls are pretty nice also. The kitchen is another story.
