    What the heck, here's our humble little wood stove. In this picture the fire is building up heat to activate the catalyst.

    Once the fire gets hot enough (after about 15-20 minutes or so) I'll choke it up and open the bypass gate into the cat and then the temp climbs. Once it starts the re-burn, very little smoke emits from the chimney, mostly steam or clear vapor.

    No clue what brand this is. Grandpa had it put in when the old Monarch burnt out in the early 80's.

    Put new class 3 liner in the chimney this year. T in the bottom was pin holing after 35 yrs or so.

    The stove got 3 new fire bricks this year but otherwise no repairs. She is a getting a bit thin and warped in the baffle. May be time to consider replacing. Well 3-5yrs or so.

    Has burned 2.5 cord this season keeps lower level warm. Just not much burn time.

    You can't tell it's running from a picture, but I assure you it's keeping the house comfortably warm :D
    It's a Woodchuck 3100 furnace that I cleaned up, repainted, and installed this past fall.

    It's old and needs replacing in the next few years, but it's safe and keeps us warm[​IMG][​IMG]

    IMG_20171124_035806.jpg Is the gate to keep the kids back? Ares is to keep the 2 year old back. He points and says hot hot but I still think he would touch it if it wasn't gated. Stove is a 20 year old Vermont Castings Resolute Acclaim

    Yeah just so they don’t fall face first into it running around. Makes the wife feel better, so makes my life easier.

    Found this stove at my local establishment. Custom made, if I had to guess it was made by a pipe fitter lol. I want one!

    Getting low on wood, stack brought indoors today is 1.5 maybe 2 weeks worth of wood.... this weekend is supposed to be pretty mild, but if old man winter digs his nails in I might have to dip into next season's stack of Ash wood....

    Lit the boiler today. I had been filling it with scraps and cardboard all summer so three large splits lasted from 2pm till 10:15. Granted it wasn’t that cool today so not a lot of heat call.

    I cleaned it off yesterday in prep to fire. It sure looks good for circa 1981 build.

    Wood door. I have an outdoor rack to the left and park two wheelbarrows outside the door.

    “Custom” fresh air vent so I’m not sucking air in through the rest of the house.

    Nice and toasty. Will dry up the inside wood stack nicely.

    My grandpa made two of these fireplace tool racks. I believe the tools are homemade too.

    Inside storage holds a bit less than 1/2 cord

    Outdoor rack holds 1/2 cord plus a bunch of uglies to burn first.

    I just loaded three good splits plus some uglies in for the night. I do have the aqua stat set for propane backup if needed but it’s not going to be that cool overnight to the point that would be necessary. Does come in handy on subzero nights though if you don’t feel like loading the stove at 4 AM. When I’m home for extended time I’ll turn the gas boiler to pilot so I’m forced to feed the fire.
