The lovely log burner

A few years ago Tony and I decided that we would have a woodburner installed.  It was the best decision we had made in a very long time as we have yet to pay for any logs. The first year we spent gathering logs in a local woodland area where the council just haul any fallen trees.  It was kind of like a log heaven (if you own a woodburner you will understand)We are now fortunate enough to get offered lorry loads  … so long as we collect them…..  I now have muscles like Popeye. Originally we had a huge brick fireplace that sucked the light out of the already dark sitting room so  I thought you might perhaps like to see how we transformed it. This was a major refurb of our home as we replaced two sofas, every carpet and both dining tables and chairs. Tony had always hated wallpaper so it came as quite a shock when he said the ‘wallpaper might make a nice change. We had planned to only paper the chimney breast wall  but he liked it so much that I did the wall around the pretty coloured glass door too (we put that door in many years ago.)

    We did the SAME thing! Out with the fire place and IN with the wood stove! My home is now toasty warm 8 months a year. I couldn’t be happier with the decision and we save a TON of money! I’ll make a post just for you neighbor so you can see ours! 😀
