Man, what a long drive that was yesterday. Took me 3 hours to get to DS Machines in Gordonville, PA then another 3 hours to get home. I picked up my new DS-1600 (rated at 125k BTU per the owners manual). It took four friends and one 3/4" tongue and groove door borrowed from my son's room (unfortunately there are no pictures of this contraption)to get the 600 pound heaty monster off the back of my truck through the front door and into the living room of the house. It now sits on a furniture dolly made out of 2x4 about 4' from the Chubby. The stove will be installed on Saturday January 8th and fired up Saturday January 8th in the afternoon.
I will no longer be in the "One Match Club".
Unless lighting a new stove does not count towards the club?
My wife still thinks the stove is "Ugly" but now she has added the words, "Really Large". My 11 month old daughter however loves the stove; she tries to open the doors.
