Congratulations Josh,
I bet your very excited, I know I would be. Is Doug able to send you any progress pictures of the stove before and during the restoration ?

I am sure your going to be pleased with the No 6, they are great looking antique stove, not to mention what they can do heat wise !

You betcha !

I will ask him about the photos next week when I send him some doe ;)



By the way I am super impressed with the concrete I used . The base seems to be cured now thanks to the stove ;) and looks great! In fact the job has turned out so well that I will be pouring my own pad for the new steel building I'm going to put up :)

You know another place to put a coal stove ;)

I have an addiction to projects I think!

When I bought this house with land I knew I wanted another garage for a car lift and welding and the standing garage for a wood working shop a long with a photography and music studio plus my office upstairs . I plan on working for myself within the next 5-10 years as well as having my house paid off and while doing that I will be rallying people to try to change property taxes and get rid of them all together so that when Virginias retire we don't owe anyone anything.

I have a lot of plans and goals and maybe some won't work out and to my surprise some will. But it's all in Gods hands and one wonderful life :) .

Smokey, reading your last post, I think that the best place to realise all that and plus would be here in the Québec Province. :D We also have a lot of dreamers here :lol:
But anyway, just take care :!:

Pierre! I actually love Quebec . Although I have not officially been out of the airport there, I had a friend who lived there and I studied it a lot. Coming from French decent myself I don't think I would have a problem fitting in with my last name ;) plus I can speak a little bit of French right now. And I hear it's a pretty conservative, rights based place to live!

Very nice job. What did you put in the stove to get that glow, nuclear carbon? :lol: We can even see irradiations in the steam pot :D
If allowed don't forget to send the restoration photos...

Glad to see the concrete project came out well. Next year at this time you will have a Glenwood setting on it. I can see the WM is really cranking. Watch those boots don't ignite, only kidding. :) Nice job.

Glenwood? :drool: did you say Glenwood? :sick: (the green represents "envy") can't wait to see the finished product. We all know you've got a good sturdy base there Josh. Looks good. Keep the pix coming.

Haha Pierre , thats some funny stuff ! :rofl:

It was a bit fire and the light levels on the phone camera were just washed out. Although I did have the stove cranking pretty high. The problem with this stupid warm weather is when it gets cold it takes a few hours to get the stove up and going and heating the whole house so I push it a good bit in the beginning. But I know it's limits and what not after last year. I am very proud of this Warm Morning stove and I don't think I can ever get rid of it because it was the first coal stove I ever burned in.

Oh and Pierre I forgot to mention the plutonium in the humidifier , you know it helps to keep my families skin nice and ran through the winter and power a 3rd world country at the same time toothy

Every morning I get to put nice warm boots on before I go to work! Plus the stove dries them out well. yes next year should be a little easier to heat this house!

Yes sir ! Glenwood #6 ! Now I can stop bugging William and Keith with a billion questions about base heaters lol.

They do cost a lot of money though. It was a sort of tough decision to make... I really could have used some new computer equipment for my side company but I want to be warm and have a bigger stove !

If this winter doesn't put out anything soon it looks like I will be starting the hearth sooner than later.

Thanks for all The kind words guys! I couldn't have had the knowledge and drive to do all these things with out the help of everyone on this site!

I put a little video of the stove burning bituminous and showing off the hearth area with a few pokers... It seems a little dark and did not seem so dark on the camera when I was shooting it but this is the first time I've uploaded video from this camera to YouTube . It is a Nikon Coolpix AW100 . The all weather camera . Maybe next time I'll use the built in light.
