Looks really good. The whole package.... the stove, the trim, the tile, the floor really look great. The stove was made for that room. Again, nice job. ;)

I sent the entire poker to get just the handle plated and the entire piece came back plated, too nice to use it now but I like it :D .

That's sweet! I should send one of my hand forged pokers to be plated ! I never though of doing that.

The stove looks great ! And you did a great job on the hearth as well. Btw I officially have given the deposit for my glenwood 6 and I pick it up in May. Still haven't decided on shipping it or driving up yet.

I know temps have been high lately but they are dropping. Is it running right now? Yes between your thread, William and a few other threads in pretty excited about it. I can imagine how you felt when you picked yours up. You should do a YouTube video too!

Excellent job Keith! Very impressive on the install and the stove. I like the shaker door flap. nice choice. I almost did that and my primary vents but couldn't bring myself to remove them since they were nice and tight. Now that it's all done and ready to roll (cold weather coming tomorrow here at least). Now I'd imagine that symbolic avatar pix (0 dark 30? ;-) will show something. :lol:

Very good set up Keith :!:
All fit perfectly together and the nickel parts give the final touch to the install. Good to see that you're satisfied with Chrome Blacklake job.
These tiles are so nice and they give a rich look that matches perfectly with the stove. If I get a 3* stove :lol: and get rich , I will use some tiles like yours. But I don't know where I could put a 3* stove, actually the Golden Bride is sleeping most of the time. The Sunnyside is the heating ""boss"" here and don't like to have an other stove heating the house with him.
BTW, don't make too much ""nortifications"" with my ""name"" = nortcan :lol:

Not running yet, only in the mid 40's here right now and with the rain I don't want to open the doors when the house gets too hot :shock: .
:lol: no videos here, William has that area very well covered on the No 6. I actually go back and watch his from time to time.

Thanks Steve, you and several others have set the bar pretty high and given me a lot of inspiration and help along the way.
I wish I could have gotten the loading door and ash pan door handles off without destroying something but they didn't want to cooperate, I would have liked to have plated those as well.

Not sure on the avatar picture just yet though.

Thank You for the compliments,
The window moulding is actually coil stock I put over the window trim. I left a 2.5 inch gap between the original trim and the coil stock and that gap is filled with fiber glass insulation. I have about 24" from the nearest part of the stove to the closest part of the metal coil stock.

Thanks Pierre,
I am Very Happy with Jacques and the crew there, they are great guys to work with that did an outstanding plating job !

The tiles weren't too expensive, I saved a lot by doing it myself and restoring the stove myself. If I wasn't able to do that I would still be burning pellets and wood :mad: !

What is a 3* stove, one so big you only run it at 3* or lower ? It's great to hear that the Sunnyside is the Boss, I guess you can give the edge to it over the Vigilant ? I have a few "Nortifications" in mind but I have to hit a few antique stores first :lol: .
