Little Red Stove

This is the shlef we used the dresser base brackets for because of the weight of all the stuff we actually used the l shaped metal brackets on the top of the shelf and the thick wooden ones for show but only you know..................
We have recently removed a non-working living flame gas fire and had the chimney sealed etc as Bob the Bodger who has caused us so much work since we bought his house had in fact had the fire people round a couple of years before and they warned him not to use the fire as the chimney wasnt sealed etc - but he 'forgot' to tell us obviously - he just elft a note on the day we moved in saying the fire wouldnt stay lit. Anyway the last of our downsizing profit later we have a beautiful red Franco Belge multi fuel stove which is nearly as lovely as the dresser top!!
The heat it puts out is amazing and as we spend a lot of our time on our own as the adults kids living with us are always out it means we only need to heat that room and save some energy money.

This is the surround we took out and they cleaned out the cavity and bricked it up.
