Nice looking stove dog, it looks really good with the brick. What did it cost?
Thanks! I think it looks nice. The wife is less thrilled. She thinks it sticks out too much.
Soup to nuts, it cost me $4,405.78.
Flex Liner Kit: $775
Being warm this winter without paying big money to Big Oil: Priceless.
I paid more for the stove than I could have, but I ended up buying it from a dealer who does installations. The other dealers I got quotes from were cheaper, but none of them installed. The cheapest I found was $2,100 with tax, so I paid about $400 more for the stove than I could have. My dealer also banged me an extra $300 over his normal install price because I was way out of his normal install area (120+ mile round trip).
Part of me is mad that I spent more money than I could have, but I'm just glad that I have a coal stove for this winter. Many, many folks won't get theirs until Spring. I have a friend who is putting $1,000 down on an Alaska stoker this week and won't get it until at least March 2009.
I also liked being able to sit back and let someone else worry about installing it. It would have taken me all day and required some planning to get the help I would have needed.
