I appreciate your help a lot! I'll keep updated once we get this resolved! Wish we would have know all this to begin with!Those are the folks I was hoping you would hear from, they’ve helped us a lot along the way also… I’m sorry to hear all of this, but also where I thought it might be going, and why I backed out without their expertise.
I can tell you, if you have an ample supply of wood, that you should be very happy with the stove’s performance once you get your install lined out correctly. Be well, be safe.
Can anyone advise what sweeping through the ss liner is like? If we use our insert daily 5-6 months/year how often are we sweeping and is that process difficult? (I realize everyone's is going to be slightly depending on wood burned and frequency)
