    What a great looking little stove! That looks nicer than the one I saw on the showroom floor. I'm looking forward to hearing the winter burning reports. Add another picture once it's hot and burnin!

    Only here can we find such a fan club of a nice wood stove that we would be clammering to fire it up in August!

    That looks great!

    Great looking stove, just installed a Hearthstone myself. How big an area are you looking to heat with it? Best of luck with it, congrats.

    Nice install, I've just finished mine also. Thankfully we actually have a sunny day today and I've started to cure the stove, WHOA this stinks how long does the cure process take until the smell abates some?

    Nice looking stove there Randy. It will burn off in about 3-4 fires. Each time will get better. Keep the windows open in the meantime.

    That vent is air conditioning and will be closed during the cold months.

    Well it got kinda cool here tonight around 64. So I thought I would take the chill off with a little break-in fire. Here are pictures with the fireplace screen and without.
    It seemed to go fine as far as drafting well, no smoke in the house. I didn't really get stove much over 200 degrees.

    Very nice stoves / installs guys. Looking good. I am working on my Durock wall pad and hearth right now. Its allot of work for somebody like me that does not build much stuff. I cant wait to get my TL 300 installed.

    Check your stove manuals carefully. Many of them have some pretty specific instructions for break-in fires & temperatures to properly cure the finish. Nice looking installs, all. Rick

    It only burned for a little over an hour and a half or there abouts. I didn't put much wood in it so it wouldn't get too hot. I got the new stove smell going though.
