After dreaming about having this in my life for decades, I finally have a log burning stove.
We went for the Hunter Aspect 4 with a granite hearth. We both liked the Aspect stoves as the window is large, letting you see more of the fire inside it.
In our case, a log burning stove isn’t necessarily 100% for heating the home, it’s partially decorative, but I can’t imagine we’re ever going to use the radiators in this room ever again.
We need to decorate the livingroom and sort out somewhere to store wood and we’ll be set!
Of course, when I say “set” I mean “set to get furniture and begin making the house a home rather than a building site.” One step at a time.
