very nice wood burner fireplace with a strong, masculine... majestic stance. I particularly like the mantle and the curved stone arch over the firebox. i also like the height of the hearth... hope you keep it as a working wood burning fireplace. very attractive, indeed.Thanks, I'm debating on putting a wood stove in it. The heat would be better but I would miss having an indoor fireplace I think.
My friend has the exact same stove. I found it for him on CL also. Here is how it looks all cleaned up.some of my friends up in the country use wood heat for barn areas, shop or even the house... I like a wood burning stove. and have wanted one for some time. recently I came across this CL find for $175.00. I bought it sight unseen 15 mins after i saw the listing... as there was a crowd coming the next day to see it... met the guy downtown, we made our deal... and couple weeks later over Xmas holidays... I picked it up. not sure exactly where I will put it, but looks like it will go into the bunkhouse up on my farm. I really like it a lot. especially since I can unbolt it completely and move it in sections. no help needed! I plan to cook on it, too. this is exactly as it sat inside the grandma's place when I went to retrieve it... they gave me the brass wood holder u can see on the L, as well... nice deal!

did u do the restoration and installation, to? will it be used for heat? nice clean installation! have you seen this similar unit's restoration on utube? there is a 2nd part, also... interesting vids.
I m pretty sure I will, my OWB will provide most of the heat for the house. This fireplace and the one one the back porch are mostly for ambiance.very nice wood burner fireplace with a strong, masculine... majestic stance.

I have just scrolled thru all the posts here on this very cool heater/burner thread! liked every post, pix I saw... see. nice invites into your homes, living rooms and dens... great rooms! enjoyed the tours... from fireplaces, to wood stoves, to boilers... big, small... all perfect! imo. to cooking steaks on the wood stove/heater... cast iron pan. you can do it differently, but you can't do it no better. btw, chef... you should post some of your wood stove cooking over at what did u have for dinner tonite thread...
I have some fireplaces, a wood stove, fire pits, etc and my outdoor unit - Brutus! I put in all of my fireplaces, etc myself... albeit working with contractors and brick layers, etc. none were in any buildings before I put them in. following are a couple that I can find pix of right off, will post up more in time, fires a blaze, etc...
Looks like you have a really beautiful place! I would love to do an outdoor fireplace like that! Thanks for sharing. Always helps with ideas!
real nice, as well. I like that they are masonry fireplaces. show us a pix of your ash pit doors? or do you clean out from the front? are the flues masonry all the way?
yes! yes, indeed... especially when u decided to clean out the ash... inside.. lol..... no doubt cleaning out the ash, almost a sprititual ritual... requires a steady hand, gentle moves... patience with care... and borders on being an art form. invariably, seems always one shovel full hits the ash bag... tin... and oops... omg, ah _ _ _ _ !! etc... I have it down to a dull roar and a disciplined science. stihl, always happiest best when done and front of hearth vacuumed and sitting back enjoying the next fire as it starts to do its thing....I would have liked ash pits, but people down here don't really put them in new construction anymore. I didn't think about it until it was to late. Not sure how it would have worked on the stone one since it's on an interior wall.
