    Dex - you got it going on, man. Beautiful family - great inlaws - a nice place to get away. Cherish it. I LOVE the cabin, but don't think you got away with it....I saw that electric baseboard.;)

    Jags, I have long tried talking my BIL into an insert... But his memories of the Fireplace with his Father keep him from installing one. Those are water/radiator baseboards. The Cabin is a ways of the road, but my FIL ran a Natural gas line to the house. So it has a Nat gas fired boiler in the Crawl space.

    Because he is only there on weekends. He keeps the stat at 50° and maily uses the Fireplace. Because it has an OAK inlet on the outside (right above the ash trap outside) it does a pretty good job.

    A little Morso or Jotul would look good in the corner of the kitchen :) He has about 4 cord of wood there thats S/S and another 2-3 that still needs C/S/S. One day I may talk him into it. He likes hangin by the 30-NC when he is over... ;)

    Lots of good people here. With good Morals.

    Friends and Family are everything.
