This is the wood burning cooker that we've installed in the barn. It will roast Wills and Kellogg's vegan Saturnalia feast, as well as heating the baby's bath water. It will also provide all that's required for the barn's 8 radiators (which have now been installed). It's an all singing, all dancing, sonofagun machine. I think it's Italian.
Where the two blocks are sitting, to its left, will be a small log storage area; this has now also been built!
The stove is actually a very hi-tech, Eco machine, that burns very efficiently. However, some smoke will no doubt emanate from its sacred bowels, and here is where it will exit.
A house just ain't a house without a chimney, even a modern hi-tech one.
How beautiful and how lucky they are and you too. Here too more amd more people are using wood stoves for the short winter that we have and I like the smell of burnt tree in that season.ReplyDelete
Always nice to see a proper FLAME in winter.Delete
Winter will be a big change to Winter in Byron Bay!Delete
It certainly will. It gets down to -10 C or less here.Delete
Hope you have a lot of fire wood storageReplyDelete
It's very wooded here, so supply is not a problem. We usually keep about 20 cubic metres in reserve.Delete
What a machine - looks like it will do the job perfectly and make the barn toasty. When does the kitchen go in?ReplyDelete
Not until my son and family arrive (July-ish). I think it's such a personal thing that we're leaving it to them; as we are with their main bathroom.Delete
After all, they may not like islands....Delete
I'm thinking more of a table on wheels, with add-ons.Delete
I just took an old table, beefed up the apron and added some wheels to make a movable island in my kitchen. It really is useful.Delete
I've got a brand new table (Ikea) that I don't use. It should be perfect for something similar.Delete
I want to fit a woodburner in my Brixham home and have visions of 'foraging' for fuel in the nearby woods picking up some everytime I go for a walk. Not sure if this is just a crazy pipe dream!ReplyDelete
Why should it be? But you'd have to take several trips to the woods each day; they do burn a lot!Delete
Cool. Nut roasts here we come.ReplyDelete
Can't understand it; how can anyone resist a good roast chicken or gigot!Delete
That is a good idea to let them choose the layout of kitchen and bath. After all your work, you don't want to hear any complaints.ReplyDelete
I'm so enjoying watching the progress of this home. Before long you'll be able to run tours.ReplyDelete
We're actually enjoying the process too. It's all coming together now.Delete
The finished barn should be a marvel! Love the stove...ReplyDelete
We would certainly love to live there, I just hope my son feels the same.Delete
Wow, what a marvelous piece of kit that can provide all the heating for a barn and a cooker as well. What will they cook with in the summer? (Almost tempted to light our woodburner this week.)ReplyDelete
There's going to be a big 'range style' cooker with gas hob and electric oven.Delete
You could light-up tonight.... it's freezing (when there's no sun).
Come back to the UK Sue, you could light the woodburner every night right through until August.Delete
