Fired Up




It doesn't take long to heat the place up now. We have the downstairs RSF furnace and the new Osburn wood heater upstairs.

The animals have a new favorite place to lounge about. And my daughter, Sara, when she visits. I still have a bit of work to do around the chimney. Installing a collar around the pass through chimney and putting some polish on the Osburn, and painting the OSB that I leveled the floor with. Oh and installing a metal railing around the kitchen side of the stove. A future project is putting down a barn wood floor. I have enough old fir in the buildings that wrap around the trees and a couple of spare planer blades.

The wind was blowing hard from the East last night and I will have to unwrap the skidsteer and plow out the place. Then I plan on humping the deconstruction material over to the burn pile. A lot of the old pine wall covering will get turned into kindling.

And then we'll try and stay awake until midnight to toast in the New Year.

Hahaha! You said humping!

Happy New Year to you and Jo-Ann and the warm pets of Endako.

The new fireplace looks cozy and lovely. Well done!
