Woodstove





Erik and I for awhile now have played with the idea of putting a wood stove in our house. So far these are my ideas. Sorry the pictures aren't very clear, pencil does not scan well. Picture number 1 (they are labeled but in backwards) doesn't really work because of clearances and roof trusses. Number 2 is okay. Number 3 is my favorite and Erik likes number4. Number 4 would also be the easiest. Number 3 we lose less room but it is a lot of work. There's also the difference between a free-standing wood stove and an insert. You can't cook on an insert during power outages but we also have a propane cook-stove that I can and do cook on when the power goes out. With number 2 and number 4 we would shorten our front closet, put the door in the hallway and put the piano by the front door. Number 1 and number 3 we would shorten the closet and put the door in the hallway still but the piano would stay where it is. Which one do you like best?

I think you shuldnt stick it where the piano is because your space there is so crouded anyway,...but really em its you that has to live there and whats important is that you like it.

Neither of us are completely sold any way...we're still trying to figure it out so I'm just looking for opinions and ideas.

I like number 3, would be nice to have a stove in the living area to make it cozier. All the ideas look neat though. We have our wood stove on today and it smells so good.

Where is the piano going to go?? I like 4 best, but my allegiance is always to musical instruments. Just kidding.
