Thanks! My apologies for not getting photos up sooner.
I am still in awe of how good of shape this stove is in. I was fully prepared to put some serious cash into getting her ready but instead I can buy more coal with that money.
All that is left to do is round up three friends who can lift the stove up while I postition the base of the stove so everything fits perfectly. Once that is done it will be time to fire her up. The stove will stand on a nice hearth rug once completed. I had 3 people lined up yesterday but one of them didn't arrive till over an hour later than expected. Hence the other two had to leave as this was only supposed to be a 15 mins job tops.
I have decided I am going to decorate the wall behind the stove with coal and woodstove items. Old pokers, coal ads, ect ect.
That sounds nice, I am sure it will look beautiful. Very similar in design to the Glenwoods which I also like.
I would like to re-do my hearth area too but I have a lot of construction projects on the outside of the house this spring so the hearth will have to wait. I got my stove fully operational yesterday and it is doing really well. I am going to try to take some photos of it in operation this weekend.
