We have fire!!! Happy happy happy!!!
|It did look like this for a while... We did the monkey work ourselves to save money,|
left the installation to the pro though!

|Great draw and not one bit of smoke out into the room :)|
It was so lovely to finally be burning from our wood pile that we've been adding to for months! There was a slight 'new oven' smell to it so we've had the windows open to flush out any bad fumes but I think they'll be gone in a day or so. Even with the window open a few inches it's as warm as the radiators heat! It did cost a fair bit to have it installed but with our cheap wood it'll only take about 2-3 months to pay for itself then we'll be saving loads. To be honest even if the cost were the same I think we'd have one, I definitely feel warmer looking at a real fire.
I love this last photo - Cara meeting her new best friend :)
