The Wood Stove!!

Okay, the computer is fixed, so I can catch you up a bit. Please excuse the clutter in the following photos---but hey, its real life.

On Dec. 29, Joni and I made the base that will hold the Wood Stove. Start with concrete blocks and some gravel...

Then we put the slate that Joni picked up along the Ridge. We mortared that into place..

And here is the new Wood Stove. A bit dusty from a month's worth of use..

Another photo of it. This is a Lennox. Super efficient, it has only 25 percent of the emissions of a normal wood stove.

It only took us 2 1/2 years to put this thing in. Many, many nights of sleeping in sleeping bags as the temps dropped below freezing. That which doesn't kill us....

That's not a wood stove. It is clearly made out of metal of some kind.
