Proper foundation. Thanks for all your help. Cant wait till its cold and I can really get her going. Barnstable Stove did a great job. Really happy with the outcome. Hooked on the old stoves. William was right.
Even on a 80 degree day I had no problems getting her going. I know I'm missing the lower beauty ring will be in the mail tommorrow. Well thats all I have for now. Take care all. Matt

I know. If I put it upstairs then I would have had to cut up/modify a fireplace and I reallly didn't want to do that. Don't worry a dehumidifier is going in the basement. She's in good hands.

everyone thinks those rings were for beauty (but their first and foremost job was to circulate air!) ;) our grand papa's were very smart and they knew heat rose and when heat rises it "draws" cooler air into its place and creates a never-ending cycle of circulation of air without using 1 watt of electricity! .... but aint they beautiful too!!! :D great stuff bro and wish you many years of old fashioned warmth and savings!

Very nice stove. You will love it on these colder Winter days...But they were made to work in all situations.
Dcrane is right: our grands-papas (in French :lol: ) knew what was a stove, I mean a working stove... :)

Excellent. You got one with the indirect back pipe. You will be impressed with it's performance. Now you need to watch the draft when it gets cold. The stove is hooked up to a tall chimney and the draft will be very strong when it is cold.

I was going to ask about your pipe. It looked like a second back opening. You mentioned an indirect back pipe. Is that what this is? I never saw such a thing before. How does it function and its purpose? is it like a stink pipe in a sewer set up? Used to allow excess gas to escape?

Beautiful stove you have there. Any idea as to the btu's on a unit that size?

Enjoy.

Vinmaker, the way it was explained to me was it's a indirect back pipe. You can have the draft either go straight up the smoke pipe or you can divert it so it stays in that black housing a little more, thus letting the exhaust give up a little more heat before it goes up the chimney. William, please correct me if I'm wrong. Matt
