This is my inaugural post in regards to home improvement projects.
Our first "Major" project will be to replace our Fuel-Oil based heating with a Wood Pellet Stove. Initially, we looked into having it done by a local resource. Unfortunately, the cost was almost 4 times the cost of doing it myself. Considering the specifications as to what needs to be done is all online or included with the stove, I'm going to take a stab at doing it myself.
On Thursday, I talked with the Fire Marshall about the prospect of doing this myself. He said that most people, if they take the time to read the instructions/UL requirements, can do this themselves. Once we are done with the installation, we just have to give the building office a call and they will verify our work. Feeling confident, I told him that Robyn would be down to pickup the permit the next day. $25 later, we have a piece of paper that says we can do it!
We picked up the King/Ashley 5500m Pellet Stove from our local TSC on sale. We also picked up the vent kit as well. This thing is a Beast! I'll post pictures of it tomorrow, after I have a few friends over to help get the darn thing out of my truck!
So, here we go!
