The Adventures of the Wood Stove: Part 1
We chose to put in a wood stove this winter. We love it now, but it was a process!!! Here we go. Follow along!
Step one: Choose where the wood should be located. Rearrange the living room five times. Begin process.
Step 2: Cut a hole in the ceiling. Wait, not there. There. That is where the hole should go.
Step 3: Blue sky, smiling at me.... nothing but blue skies do I see. It was a bit chilly for an open skylight!!
Step 4: Smile at your man who is up on the roof on a frigid day, working to make your house warm. It is especially fun to do through the hole in the ceiling.
Step 5: Insert the beginnings of the stove pipe. Woohoo! One step closer to having a wood stove in the house.
Part two coming soon.......
