Stove fitted

Just in time for summer the STOVE is finally installed and operational.  We won’t get to really put it through its paces for a while but it looks fantastic in the room.

We purchased a Jotul wood-burning stove and flue kit from Murphy Heating in Kinvara.  It has taken us some time to get the correct adapter to fit the twinwall flue into the top of the stove.  After a couple of false starts where the wrong adapters were sent we finally managed to get a correctly sized adapter. Last week it arrived and we were ready to install it.

We had the expertise of Peter Molony (plumber, gas and stove installer) and his ladder which was essential to assemble and position the 6 metres of flue.  It was a slightly precarious activity to lift the sections of flue into place, clip them together and finally fit the ceiling plate.

A spray of stove paint to cover any exposed chrome and scuffs and scratches and the flue was complete.
