Through stacking some coupons, I was able to get the stove for $100 off, back while it was still warm. My son and his wife graciously helped with the installation and God seems to be in charge of the wood!
(You've seen a pic of that already in the last post.)
(Thank you Keenan and Madi- I can hardly wait to share it with you!)
This should bring our winter utilities down by over 1/2, not to mention it will be a LOT warmer, especially in the basement.
Here she is- isn't she lovely?
|It had to sit on a metal pan for safety but in front of it, we just cut out the carpet, down to the concrete. Later we can pretty it up maybe, with some tile or something, but for now- ah, it's warm!|
Yonder she blows!
Nothing like a big stainless steel chimney to spruce up a house, huh?
It's pretty cool too- to step outside and smell the wood burning. Mmmm! Nice.
The top of the stove also gets hot enough to cook a few things on-can't wait to see how far I can take that!
I expect that will be a small savings too.
The couple who installed it for us were very kind and thorough. They will be back to close in the box on the side of the house. They've also promised us some fun in the future- COD-style, and that's all I'll say about that here ;-)
God is good girls.
This investment will save us for a long, long time and we'll be so much warmer!
Exo 19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.
