A woodstove

We have a large room at Anchovy World Headquarters, which sits over the garage. It is joined to the rest of the house as part of a reno that was done in the early 90s but originally, the garage was separate from the house. We call this room the tree house. We've been exploring the idea of putting a small woodstove up in this room. Yesterday we arranged to have one of these installed. It will likely be late December or early January before it is in place. Woodstoves have changed quite a bit over the years. Most of the stoves made today are clean burning and efficient. They're also much safer than old-school stoves and require remarkably low clearance from walls. They can sit on a fire-proof pad, or on some kind of patio stone configuration over a sheet of galvanized steel, or on a piece of thick glass.
