Arts and crafts: Stove Installation

So.  The project continues to move forward.  I finally got the chimney parts in and had some unseasonably warm days to install them. 

Nothing is as easy as it should be.

All the chimney sections were dented but the dents popped out easily.  Some of the inside assembly wasn’t very good.

I did an initial fire in the stove outside to burn off toxic factory elements.


And I got to play with new toys.


So.  Chimney is done.  I hate working in high places. 

Leveling this was a bitch. The ground was too soft and driving on it made a mess.

Coming together.

      I was just thinking about that. Local hardwood is $280/chord, delivered, unstacked… unseasoned. They claim they have sold out of seasoned wood.

      I’d ask you to bring it by, but I suspect your delivery charge would be exhorbitant.

      Also, no teenagers in my neighborhood, so no one but me to stack it.

    Well, you could fly out here and rent a uhaul and load it up and drive it home one way. The oak is unseasoned but the hickory stood, dead, more than a year. So it is ready to burn now, and theres a good cord there. If you could get a good rate on yhe flight and the uhaul, it might not be too bad.


  4. Og says:

    If you loaded the uhaul with oak and hickory, youd have hickory this year and oak next. You could probably get 5 cords in a big uhaul, but it would probably break an axle.

    Yeah, it would only work if you stole the truck and the gas, and you are not the right type of person to do that.

      And I would have to live in some place where wood was scarce. It is practically free here in VA. I’m just paying for the labor to cut it up and deliver it.
