Woodburning Stoves – fireplace inserts

This is mostly going to be a blather post.

The stove we installed is a free-standing woodburning stove, because what we had was a hole in the wall.

If you have an extant fireplace, however, you have a pretty hole in the wall that will vent smoke and let a little heat into the house; a woodburning stove insert will actually heat the house (And also give you a place to heat your tea)

How to install:

If you are installing it in the winter, you’re going to pay an arm and a leg for seasoned firewood, if you can find it.
Ecobricks are compressed sawdust. They burn nicely, are available year-round, and come in shrinkwrapped packages.
