Finally- going into our 2nd full winter in this house we have a new wood stove installed. When we moved in the previous owners had installed an old, ugly gas insert which did not work. After going through one winter with a few power outages and no back up heat this baby has been a long time coming! Maine winter's REQUIRE a wood stove! I have never lived in a house without one.
This is what it looked like the day we moved in:

The final product! Can't wait for the cold weather now. I know- bite my tongue.......
