Hey all! Wew have our Castine installed and I am very happy with it. I feel so fortunate for not using our natural gas furnace to heat our home. Its been fun building and maintaining fires. As soon as I trim the hearth I will post some pics of the install. I'm curious about wood BTU'S. Does anyone know what kinds of wood burns hot. Seems like I remember reading something about this subject here a while back..? What are the prefered woods to burn? I have access to quite a few varities and think I could probably be selective about what wood I gather. I have gained a lot of useful info from this post and am most appreciative! Thanks for any advice! Brian PS. Pre-install pic here. Louie loves a fire!
