Well guys, November 11th I will have my Crawford No. 40 delivered from the stove hospital, I had Emery add silver high temp paint to the raised work on the stove and lettering. My Herald Oak No. 18 has it and it sets off the look with all the nickel. I'm looking forward to burning it. He already ran it for 12 hours so no stinky paint smell or break in period. I will be taking pictures of the install and heart pad ect. We found a chimney in great shape in the middle of the house that was taken down below the roof line when they re-roofed the house. They dropped some bricks down it so I'm having the bricks cleared out and used to rebuild the chimney again. It might require some extras but I want to do it right. On one side of the house was our fire place that was walled off, and on the other side is where our stove will be. I will still use a flex liner for better air control and be able to use the fireplace again in our bedroom. I see the sign in picture for NortCan and its a beautiful looking fireplace insert. I'd love to put something like that in our bedroom. Anyway, I'm really excited to get this one here and burning. I'm waiting for Emery's friend George to finish the other Crawford No. 40 and I will put that in the living room in place of the Herald No. 18 that Emery and George restored for me last fall. Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet as my wife has told me I have stove fever and I'm collecting them like purses. I told her that with my dad staying with us and bringing 2 Crawford 40's back into the house (these were the stoves he had growing up) my stove collection is complete. I think it is pretty cool to have the same two old stoves in the house. We live in Michigan and these are rare in these parts.
