Regarding my previous post about a pellet stove, we found the one we are going to buy, you can see it on Lennox's site here. With installation, it'll end up costing a little over $3k

Lorien and I are planning a mini-vacation at the end of the month, we're going to head down to Portland and visit some family, and spend a couple days on the Oregon coast. It should be a fun trip, and I'll get to see Jodie's baby.

12 Sept Update: We're driving down on the 22nd and will be staying until either the 29th or the 30th.

Pellet Stoves

Forenoon watch, 6 bells (11:07 am)

Saturday my wife and I went out looking at pellet stoves, to put in our downstairs library. They're pretty expensive, but I was shocked when I saw relatively similar inserts (we want to put it in the wall, not standing out in the open taking up tons of space) for radically different prices—one was fully $1500 more than the other. We also got some conflicting information, which made me wonder if the more expensive place knew what they were talking about or were just trying to fleece some money out of us. We're going out at lunch today to look at one more place before we decide who to go with.

I did some quick rearranging in my garage this morning in case the A/C people show up today to install the system. I have too much crap in my garage.
