Our new wood stove was installed this morning, right after we finished grouting the tiles on the hearth. Not the ideal time to grout, I know, but at least it got done and they only chipped one tile and made a tiny hairline fracture in another which doesn’t go all the way through the tile, and is only barely visible. I was all excited about starting a fire but the installer told me to wait until tomorrow to let whatever they used on the pipes dry and then to start three small fires to cure the stove before starting a roaring fire. The stove is a soapstone by Hearthside. Isn’t is pretty? I LOVE it!
