Warming Up On A Cold Night
They’re predicting a minor ice storm for Pocahontas tonight, so it warmed me up a bit when I discovered that they installed the wood heating stove in the living room of The Julia Dean apartment today in the Lesmeister Guesthouse.
The wood stoves in the apartments are for ambiance, not heat, so I got really small ones. The idea is to have a fire to watch, not get the place so hot guests start running the air conditioning to cool it back down!
They look great, though there’s one thing I’m not happy about with them. If you look at the third photo below you’ll see that, while photos can make plumb walls look slanted when they’re not, the stovepipe clearly leans forward, toward the front of the stove, to meet the hole in the roof where the pipe runs through the roof. I’m hoping they can add a longer piece in the angled part of the pipe near the top to make the thing look more plumb!
