We are now into summer and boy is it hot! It is a time a pool parties and cookouts. You do not think of your wood stove during this time of year. But Renovations and construction are going on so if a wood burner or a gas unit is in your plans, remember clearances and plan accordingly. If improperly planned for, sometimes it cannot be added because trusses, roof lines/styles or second stories are in the way or would conflict with the draft or piping making the wood stove impractical, too expensive or even impossible to install.

But remember- now is the time to split-stack-store your wood flue for this coming fall and winter. We cannot stress this enough! So many problems occur when wood is improperly kept or even green and/or the stove is “choked down”. Creosote being the worst. Always plan ahead and have your supply ready.
