I've been crushing on this wood cookstove for approximately 3 years. With five doors and five windows in the kitchen and this small hearth, only a small cookstove would fit. This was a happy birthday to me and a Merry Christmas to me. And I'm so so so happy with it! It heats the room in no time and I'd say likely 2/3 of my cooking since it's been hooked up has been on the cookstove. How about that!?
So here's the process from delivery to it in the house to being hooked up. It's obviously Holly the Black Lab's resting spot, but even our cat who likes to live in a drawer enjoys the heat. And I love love love the big puffy smoke coming out of the chimney. Picture overload, coming right up.
