Stonework Behind and Under Stove - January 28 - February 3, 2004

The stone behind the woodstove is custom made right here in Kanawha County, West Virginia, by Blue Creek Masonry (who is also our builder - more information will be posted about this company in our vendor review section). The airspace behind the heat shield is 1.5 inches, the DuRock is .5 inches, and the stone is 1.5 inches.

Woodstove - January 22 - March ??, 2004

We chose to use a Hearthstone soapstone woodstove because of their unique heating abilities. The stove was delivered January 22, 2004, and was placed on the hearth February 20.
