yeah... im in the same boat as you. about 80 gallons of oil. i just finished tiles/grouting/sealing the hearth this morning and i dry fit the stove tonight. i cant wait to get this thing roaring, and neither can my 15 cords of wood.BucksCoBernie said:Ive burned about 35 gallons of oil since early Oct. The past few weeks have been very cold (light snow twice already, hasnt snowed this early in years). Unfortunately I dont have an insert in my fireplace yet (bought the house in April)....I'd much rather burn what ive scrounged and processed than whats in my bank account!
