The joys of a wood burning stove
A stove gives out better heat than a radiator
1. A different heat
Gas/electric has gone up in price, like everywhere. A wood burner is less expensive (after the initial outlay). We have a friendly farmer providing us with wood. Plus, we make our own eco briquettes.
2. Saves money
It's a real pleasure sitting in front of a real fire. It's relaxing and mesmerising. We sit and talk.
3. Nice to look at
4. Bamber loves it!
There's something ancient about making fire.
5. Fire starter
We can cook on the stove, boil water and keep warm. During power cuts we could be self sufficient.
