We decided it would be a good idea to move the wood stove into the house before the nice French doors were installed. Something about being worried about damage or some silly thing like that.

Much discussion and measuring went into figuring out where to place the hearth stone.
|Leveling the hearth rock|
|I'm actually tipping up the rock (slightly)|
|Hold it steady!|
|Almost in position|
|Does it look as precarious as it really was?|
|Removing the pallet|
|Legs are on|
|Dead nuts level right off the bat|
|Putting in the grate|
|Ash can in place|
|Outside air intake|
All-in-all, a very successful install and many thanks to the family for helping us with it. Matt says he loves it and, assuming it performs as well as it looks, will likely be getting one for his place as well. Let's hope so.
