    We love our new Hearthstone. Here are some before and after photos. Hearthstone Homestead has warmed up our house, replacing an old Avalon (with a very noisy fan). Peace!

    That IS a beautiful stove- and a very nice hearth too !

    From the pictures i'd say that it looks like it's good for another 100 years.
    (how come no Kentucky long rifle above the mantle ?- OH I guess the women took that space over too :) )

    When you say new do you mean new to you? I don't think you have a new model. Is that firescreen for your stove? That would be nice.

    I think rdr has it right - I do think that is a homestead - very nice none-the-less - looks great, and is probably doing a nice job of heating up the "homestead".

    Edit... at first look at the pictures - I thought it was wood flooring right in front of the hearth, which looks pretty close, but on second look - are you extending and putting tile or something else in front of the hearth?

    Yea, that's a Homestead.

    See my stove for a Heritage. ;)

    Very nice stove though!!!

    Those look like tan colored tiles out front. Oh, now I see the mantleshield too. Cool.

    You are absolutely right--it IS a homestead. In the excitement of finally being warm, I got my details mixed up. Thanks for the heads up. I corrected my original message.

    Brand new, but a Homestead, not a Heritage (my error). Yup, that's a firescreen--nice for getting things going although in retrospect, I doubt we will use it much.

    rdr was right--it is a homestead. And yes, that is wood flooring in front of the hearth, but with a black metal heat shield on top of it. In the older installation (the Avalon), we had no protection on the floor because the stove was in a brick pit about a foot deep.
