New woodstove aka dryer!

We had the woodstove installed in January (2019). It was supposed to be installed before Christmas, but there were delays. For one, we didn’t have a hearth. We thought it was included, but when the guys came -with the stove – to install it, we realized that there was no hearth. After a phone call or two, it was confirmed that the hearth was not included! Time to freak out!

We ended up driving up to Smithsburg to get the hearth! It’s hard to believe that there are no companies in Frederick that sell hearths, but that’s what we found. We could’ve built our own, but that would’ve been way too expensive. I believe I could’ve done it – with all the work/projects I’ve helped my dad with. But… We opted for the prefab. It looks nice and I’m happy with it.

The chimney

Didn’t need an old fashioned chimney either. It took most of the day to have the stove/chimney installed but it was worth it! Most of the time spent was on the woodstove, the chimney didn’t take long at all!

Keeps us nice and warm

One thing I learned, if you place a box fan infront of the woodstove, it acts like a convection and pushes the heat out into the house.

We absolutely love our woodstove! It’s a Quadrafire…worth every penny!!
