warm for winter

When we moved into the house, we knew the chimney was old and non-functional. We figured that to avoid lighting the attic on fire, we’d get the chimney relined so we could build fires. After a bit of research, we discovered that the stovepipe on a wood-burning stove would fix the chimney and the stove would provide significantly more heat to the house than a fireplace.

We have to burn a couple small fires to break in the stove and finish curing the paint. We had a small one the other night – I can’t wait to dry yarn and sweaters in front of the fire this winter 🙂

Now to buy some wood…
