That was the easier of the installations. The existing pipe fit right into the back of the stove with no adjustments. The Heritage was a new install so they had to go in the attic to cut a hole in the roof and a hole in the ceiling, etc., etc.

While they were here, I baked up a storm. First chocolate chip cookies. Then zucchini apple bread. Next I chopped up veggies & threw them in the crock pot for dinner and then a pumpkin pie. Of course I shared the cookies along with coffee with Thad & Tim. They were so nice about explaining what they were doing & went over & above what they had to do. We had a little rust around the pipe on the Heritage & Thad painted that. They also re-attached a piece of metal (a patch from the wood stove pipe that was here before we moved in) on the roof that came loose with the winds the other night. No more clanging noise, yea!
They also put on a new stove pipe cap to replace the one that blew off in the tornado in August. We should be all set now.
Steve will be here in an hour. I will have both wood stoves going when he gets here :-). Can't wait to see his face when he sees how great the wood stove looks with the river rock walls.
|Ready for a fire.|
