SCORE :)

(I hope to find paint that will work to cover that gold :P)

Yesterday we were driving down our road and noticed the neighbors a mile or so up had a wood burning fireplace sitting out in anticipation for the garbage truck this morning. We drive past and on our way back out, I made Jason stop in spite of being headed for supper at my parents. We talked to the couple and they replaced this one with one big enough to heat their (very large) home. They said we could have it, and despite offering them something, they let us have it FREE. I insisted we go home for the trailer quick and grab it before supper, feeling like it would be gone if we waited...so thats what we did. On our way back towards their house, we were following a truck with the tail gate down, and I commented that they were probably going for it. Well...the slowed and drove on by, and we pulled up. They turned around and came back, asking if we were taking everything...and we said yes. Then they asked if we had talked to the owners, almost as if they thought we hadn't, that they would and then we'd have to forfeit our find. They were bummed, and we were sorry...but not sorry enough to offer them half :) So..we'll have nice cozy and CHEAPER than propane heat this winter. Bet that sounds great to everyone right about now as we all sit sweltering ;)

awesome! definitely cheaper than using propane. we had one for a little while because we had an oil furnace, but the woodstove just didn't work well in our house. we finally got a propane unit a few weeks after madi was born, and it's WAY cheaper than oil... with the old furnace we were pumping in at least $100/week. it was bad. glad you found your stove- you'll love it when it gets chilly! :)
