In the midwest they have outdoor wood burners. These push heat into the house and work really well, however if the power went out we will still have to worry. So we ending up with a beautiful cast iron woodstove. As I sit here and watch the fire and feel the heat coming across the room, I remember my childhood. Sitting by a fire talking, laughing and playing cards or boardgames. I guess a fire brings people together.
I still have to paint the wall behind but this is our first fire.
