It's Getting Hot in Here: Part 2

Nelly off of rap music totally could have been talking about the new Wood Burner we got installed one balmy summer's day! In fact it was one of the hottest days of that summer!  Timing has never been my strong suit, the time I painted window frames on the coldest day of the year is a story for another time. 

This project was wholly the husband's domain ... he umm-ed and ahhed-ed for about two years before he finally picked the stove that is now happily sat in the living room.  

Didn't he do well though, it's so pretty!  Yes, I could have cleaned it before taking this picture but then how realistic would that be?  Answer: Not very #inreallife #no filters!  It's always covered in ash dust as I'm a slovenly house keeper.

Hygge: Our wood burner, the best thing in the world on a cold day!

To get our Hygge on at the best possible price, we shopped around a lot and got a fantastic deal for our efforts, to sweeten the pot we also found a couple of great local businesses which is always a bonus!

If you are local to Berkshire, UK, this company here supplied and fitted the stove, their fixed pricing structure was no muss, no fuss and great value for money, and the hearths where supplied and fitted by this company here.

So you want one of these for yourself?  Here's the approximate breakdown of costs: 
Pevex Bohemia X40 cube: £575
Installation fee: £999
Supply & install of hearth Slate (3 cut & bevelled slabs): £355
TOTAL: £1,929

BARGAIN!

  1. Your timing is perfect because it would probably have been more expensive in colder weather. Stove installers don't have much work in heat waves. It seems that you got a reasonable price for that pretty stove. I wish I could curl up in front of it with a good book.
