So although there’s a ton of alternative ways to heat stuff out there (check out yesterday’s comment/link re compost-pile water heating, for example), I’ve already confessed that I’m a hopeless aesthete, right? So when browsing Cambridge’s Black Magic Chimney and Fireplace store today, do I investigate pellet stoves?
Hell, no. I fall in love with a Vermont Castings stove. Which can be turned on with a remote. So is operational should we lose power.
And it’s so old-fashioned and pretty!
Now: anyone want a baby grand piano? (Which is currently occupying the space this coveted stove could go.)
