We're cooking with wood now!
This is the first fire in the completely rebuilt, almost exactly like the old one, new stove. It's a Findlay Meteor, which I believe is the 1940's version of the Findlay Condor which came with the house. We traded the old Condor in. It will be refurbished over the winter and available for sale, good as new, at The Bay Barn in Seeley's Bay come spring.
As usual with bulky, heavy items that need to be loaded or unloaded off the backs of trucks, there was a lot of head scratching, opinion giving, and plain brute force to get the new stove in the house, and the old stove out. After that, the usual fiddling to get it hooked up, but it works like a charm.
This is the first real action the new chimney has seen.
It's getting pretty darned civilized at the Shack.
