I don't think I can show much more than this......... and even this is somewhat temporary. We are doing a pay as we can, pay as we go kitchen remodel........ and its been looking pretty ghetto for a while, and probably will be for the next couple years. But..... the Kitchen is the place to be.
Great pics everyone, keep em coming
Thomas, how do you propose we do the voting?
Home Sweet Home
Man you guys are killing me! The upstairs hearth has an old cast iron box in it. The new stove is in an unfinished basement, it doesn't look good against a concrete background. I really want a Jotul F100 or F3 in my fireplace!! Great pics guys!
Picture 3 probably won't score me any points either, but it's always cool to look at two stoves side by side.
Chris, I am in the awards dept. I have seen polls set up on this site where members vote. Maybe we could assign a number to each entry somehow. I would like to see 100 or more entries so we need some time and a deadline for entries, As I write on here I go back to my original thought that I am in awards and someone else needs to organize. How about it Mods or Webmaster does this have a chance?
Do we score extra points if there are orbs in our pictures? If so, I see orbs in the pictures by Kevink, ansehnlich1 and an impressive solid one by the kettle in VCburner's pic. Heck, if they are spirits why wouldn't they hang out where it is warm?
I am really enjoying seeing all of the setups. Beautiful!
The Heritage (not yet installed):
I get orbs in about a third of the pictures taken in the basement. My wife is really into the Ghost hunters and other paranormal investigation shows. We always talk about the orbs. I think its dusty down there especially with the reclaimer blower going, but I guess you make a good point. If I was a spirit I would hang out near the stove too! I didn't notice but the orb is in the picture from the main floor not the basement.
No dogs or cats warming by the fire... just soggy gloves and boots
Here's my pride and joy:
Installed March, 2009.
here is mine... originally designed For an F600 , with an extra 8" of space past req clearances. Summit don't need as much, but I like having the extra space to get willy nilly with logs and ashes.
thats a perfect spot for the EQ: its able to radiate out 360 degrees..
Heres our New-Air fireplace
And my old Joutl that sits in my shop, un-used
Here's the hearth in our smoking room.
Our friends seem to be partial to this room.
Looks just like my mud room
Here's mine. 2nd pic is for context.
Here's another one of my cave! Dark and dingy just like I like it, maybe someday I'll finish it, just not at the top of the list!
Notice the new hearth :lol: they are pavers I stole from my front entrance walkway Had to raise the stove by two inches and they did the job.
I staged it to look just like that guy's smoking room :coolsmile: ! I guess I could have dusted the coffee table after I got it out of my garage yesterday :red: ,sorry. Can I get at least one Supercedar? COME ON!
I really like that one, you get my vote Pete. Did you do the stonework? I want to dig some stone out of the steam out back and start building mine right now!
I really love the look of those Jotuls!
Thanks, but I cannot take credit as it came with the house. The only thing I did was replace an old smoke dragon VC with the Jotul. The chimney is the same construction...stones cemented over a cinder block clay-lined dual flue, no liner in fire side.
The nice thing about the rough stone is that ash and other stove detritus blends in. It can hold alot before it "looks" messy.
Nice...are you Danny Wegman
