Seeing those radiant flames warms my soul
and I value that for comfort as much as for heat.
This stove is an Alderlea. Do you like our saw blade heat barrier? AJ's idea.
Our hearth is "temporary", which means we have good intentions for making something else that will
hold up the stove long-term. We figured that once it was in it wouldn't be easy to adjust.
We wanted to try out the angle before a final commitment.
You know how the story goes though...
now that it's in, we might enjoy it this way for a looooong time!
I feel very spoiled :-)
In case you don't remember the monstrosity that was in residence before Alderlea,
let me refresh your memory:
In its defense, it was the easiest thing in the world to build a fire in
- a couple logs and a piece of paper (no kidding!), but the upside to its removal is that
hopefully it will find its true calling under the house as our boiler.
I plan to enjoy it more there ;-)
