(Not going to mention here that I haven't blogged since Oct. 1st!!!! What's happening to me?)
We've been adding a cast iron stove/fireplace to the outside pavilion. It's a bit more of a project then I thought it was going to be, but it will all be worth it in the end. We ordered a nice little fireplace that has a blower (sqwee!!) that should help keep us a bit warmer on the pavilion when it really gets cold. Not that we get a lot of cold weather here, but it will extend the amount of days that we can enjoy our big outdoor room. Then we had to locate the right kind of stove pipe, the thing-a-ma-jigs that you have to put on the roof for the smoke to go out (I'm so technical, aren't I? ha!), a grate for inside the stove, various other stuff you need that I had no idea about, and then we got started.
John poured a nice little stage area in the corner where we wanted the stove.....then that had to dry and cure for a few days....
The grate came in yesterday, so as soon as we have a cool day, we'll fire up the stove and see how it does. I'll post a picture then!
Now I'm dreaming of a little sofa and chair to sit around the fire.....I'll have to keep my eye peeled for a good buy.
