I woke up this morning in a cold sweat realizing what I had done. I mixed up my buddies the same way I do my grandkids and thought the comment was from stokerdon................ I think its that darn alzheimer's kicking in (or possibly that third cold Coos Light.) :D

Now, above all Don, you personally deserve the most credit (or in my wife's eyes) blame for the design and modifications to our basement. If not for your outstanding efforts in searching out and posting so many awesome stoves, I would probably only have three.

Now as a result, I tripled the size of my workshop, put in an outside entrance, installed another fireplace, and am adding a sunroom with a two flue chimney, just to fit three more of them in.

I can't believe I missed this thread. Superb job so far Paulie. With all them stoves, you won't have to worry about snow collecting around your foundation. William says your insert is actually a cast iron F/P. How bout the Baltimore or Sunnyside insert you show, 3rd picture down, on page 3? Is that also yours? Or is it someone elses?

I got the final placement decided for the Home Works #25 base burner, so it was time to move it into the stoker room, cut in the hole for the double heater vent, and make some room to start plastering the walls.

I started a thread when I picked up this stove and will keep the updates there.http://nepacrossroads.com/post562242.html#p562242

I m working on enclosing the stairwell and added a well needed light at the top of the stairs.

Hey Joe, now that you have your G111 purring like a kitten , you can sit back and get caught up. :D If they were all burning at the house, they wouldn't have to plow the roads in town.
I use four of them to heat different areas of the shop up the road.

I agree totally with William, that it's just a fireplace and not very efficient. My plan is to increase its efficiency a bit by adding a double wall , revertable flue, base chamber, and ducting it into my garage which is located directly behind it. That is after I finish my other hundred projects . :x

The Baltimore heater in the pic is a New Golden Sun base burner, and will be going in my upstairs fireplace, once I elevate and extend the hearth, hopefully this summer. The Comet to the right in the pic is a direct draft that when I get to it is going in my son's home.

The base burner on the left is a World's Argand that will probably reside in my new shop office....... If I live long enough :crutch:

Hey Paulie, you said you use 4 of the stoves to heat your shop "up the road". Do you keep your windows open in the house, so the radiant heat will travel to your shop? :lol: :lol: :lol: (I know, bad joke)
And with all them projects, you "are" the ambitious winner of the week. You're doing great so far. just be careful on the ice with them crutches. :?

Thanks Corey. I finally got the framing done last week, on top of the fireplace where the block ended and the ceiling started, cut the hole in the wall for the double heater pipe on the baseburner. This duct will tie the base burner into my supply duct.

This week I put up the stucco wire sheets for the 3 layer plaster, and the scratch and brown coats on the fireplace and stairway side wall.

Thanks Scott....... Between you and the PP Steward, Randy and his Geneva Andes, and Paul's G111, I started feeling guilty about my lack of progress !

I just finished putting the skim coat coat on this morning, so I'm just over the half way point. It's been too cold to power mix outside, and this hand mixing is definitely for the younger guys.

Most of the time we only use two of them , If we have a project going on in the back garage, I'll fire up the other two the night before. If I know when you are going to let your MPD open I can open the windows and shut one of them down :up:

I just might have to put skis on my walker !

Man cave project is moving along. Finally extended my upstairs cold air returns, boxed them in, and got them down to the floor level in the stoker room. This made a big difference in being able to control the temperature in the man cave without the need to keep the basement door open.

I finished the plaster in the rest of the room and decided to sheet rock the ceiling in the L shaped portion of the room that will be the kitchen area and home to my Floyd Wells Bengal range. The main portion of the room with the 1892 Monarch fireplace insert and the Home Works 25 baseburnerwill have a faux copper tin type ceiling.

I decided to finish off the inside of the main closet with the two french doors and install a shelf for my Cad printer and another for my coal related books. I also extended it a bit and gave in to letting the wife have the lower portion of this closet for her vintage factory sewing machine, in exchange for her making me curtains for the doors and windows. :D

This week I plan to start painting, and putting up mouldings.
