The Vogelzang got a new lease of life en’Rouge et Noir’. So we scrubbed it and painted it in red ready for hours and hours of wood burning this winter.
Sympa the wallpaper! So we started taking it off and Cooper helped out as well. Well kind of…
Once we had the ‘tubage’ fitted, we were able to try the chimney out.
So we brought our patio heater inside! As you do.
We needed something else.
Matt had ordered a Barrel Stove Kit from the US but we needed to find an empty oil barrel. Benjamin came to our aid and donated two barrels.
Actually I keep finding little bottles of beer absolutely everywhere. Empty of course. It supposedly has something to do with sizing things up?!?
We tested it outside and also burnt the paint off.
We then tested it inside and it got warm pretty quickly. In fact it started to glow as well. It’s actually a pretty good thing that it has a damper control on the flue. It makes the wood last longer too. Win-win situation.
Then this turned up afterwards.
