Last week Christian and Bill cemented in the hearth bricks and today the "new" wood burning stove went in. The stove pipe will be painted black.
It seems strange to have a fire here before the floors are in, but tonight it will freeze and there is much work yet before the new boiler can be used. Two old floor beams will be notched back into place in order to lay a plywood subfloor soon though. What a fun way to get rid of scrap wood we have around.
