Jotul 2.0

Jotul wood stove

We started the east wing wood stove project today.

It feels smoother this time compared to the first chimney we built last year. I attribute that to Anna's advanced skills in calculating dimensions and translating them into measurements that work.

does this mean that you have decided to go with another jotul for the east wing? rather than a 2 dog stove?

Yep. We put a lot of thought into it, and decided the extra money was worth it. Choosing our Jotul is one of the best decisions we've made this year on the farm --- it lights like a charm, burns so little wood, and keeps us toasty warm. My brother has a Two Dog stove in the yurt, and he reports it's harder to light, which made me less interested in it. So we jumped on the Jotul in December so we could get the tax credit by hooking it up where the old furnace went in the East Wing, changing it over to its real home now that we've got the time.
