    And the newer stoves are designed to re-burn (I believe that's the term) everything. If you watch how it burns, you can actually see the flame rolling/churning within the chamber, from how the incoming airflow path is designed. It leaves only powder behind to occasionally clean out.

    If the door glass is clean, you're burning good, if it gets brown/dirty, you're not burning hot enough, which will promote creosote buildup in your stack, which is not good. Think chimney fire.

    Proper seasoned hard wood is a must to avoid headaches AND creosote buildup.

        I've had an almost identical one since I moved in. I've never used it.

        I love fires and remember fondly the holiday fires in the fireplaces of the house where I grew up. I just never spend enough time in my living room to go through the hassle of starting a fire and waiting for it to go out.

          Why do you wait for it to go out?

            To shut the flu.... otherwise you wake up freezing your fucking ass off and then wonder why you know the billing lady at national grid on a first name basis.
            You know how many times I got my ass handed to me as a kid bc I feel asleep on the couch in the den with a fire going and then forgot to shut the flue.... if the doors were open, I definitely had hand marks somewhere on my body.

            Mine burns 24-7 when it’s cold. Has an outside air kit and a sealed door. No flue shut off. Door is sealed air tight.

          You gotta get over that whole thinking it’s a hassle thing. I look forward to the cool nights just so I can light this thing.

              Work smart, not hard. Why not, when I have free access to the equipment?

              Yeah, you got me there. I did mine upstate by myself, so it was fun times there. Straight up through the 2nd floor and the roof. The real fun was laying on the 40' ladder, laying flat on the rear roof(12-12 pitch), hanging over the peak to finish the outside. My chest hurts just remembering it.

            IMG_20211027_154409278_HDR~3.jpg purposely set it up so the flashing edge went up under the ridge for a nice clean finish, and minimal amount of exposed chimney stack. With the 12/12 pitch, it was easiest to just lay the extension ladder flat on the full back roof, then just basically used it as a secured walking surface. But my chest paid the price from hanging over the peak to work on it.

              Man, that's the perfect cabin right there! Absolutely love it. That is exactly what I would love for a "leave me the fuck alone" place. Would love to see some stone on the bottom half and board and batten above.

              Project budget was tight, couldn't swing the expense of the lower half in stone. Contemplated metal log siding for the look, and that was too much. I really want zero maintenance after the build, so I ended up settling on a really nice looking wood grain surfaced/color vinyl siding. Once that is done in the spring, along with the interior flooring, I am pretty much finished. Then I can really start to enjoy it more. And considering my property is completely severed by a creek from the road, and my driveway crosses a private bridge, yes, I definitely consider this my " leave me the fuck alone place". I visually have a clear "shot" down to the bridge area. I just need Lee Marvin and the boys to rig it up for me, ya know....just in case. Lol

              I get the budget part, I love to play fantasy with other people's money bc I never have enough of my own. It's spectacular even left in house wrap! Love it all!

              Went there Friday. Lots of good options and seemed like good guys except they don't stock a damn unit. Wouldn't get it until the Spring. Not that I expected less, but a neighbor/friend went to the place in Seaford, and he'll have it done in 2 weeks.

              Both look great! Love bullies. Where did you find him and how the hell were you able to cut his nails so short. Mine has claws and been trying to cut them as close to the wick as possible as they say it should shorten it, but no luck yet. Mine will be 1 Dec 1. Your's looks like a nice big boy, what's his weight?
