And the Stove Has Arrived...

I received a lot of positive feedback on my post about the pellet stove, so I thought I'd take one more post away from the subject food (but still on the topic of running a home) and show you all how it turned out.

Not too bad if I do say so myself!  Of course, we're now in a sudden autumn heat wave (read: muggy and nasty), so we won't be burning it for a bit.  However, it's there and ready to go and two tons of pellets arrive on Wednesday.  Just have to run the wire and mount the thermostat you see there in the photo.

I also receive a couple of questions about the home-made hearth pad you see underneath the stove.  As I mentioned in my previous post, pellet stoves don't require special fire-rated materials or construction so you can build your own.  I'll post a how-to tomorrow for that.
