Wood Stove Project

Dave and I decided to gift ourselves a wood stove for Christmas. Exciting right? Well, it was exciting for me. No I have a cozy new place to knit, and we have back-up heat in case of a power outage...a must in the mountains. Best of all, it gave me an excuse to build something new and beautiful.

This beautiful tile was 30% off. I built a slightly raised hearth, and also tiled the wall. Tiling the wall was not easy, as it was most definitely not flat! But a little elbow grease and some thick concrete backer board solved that problem. But I am most excited about the wood storage tower. If you've ever waded out in deep snow over and over to fetch firewood, I'm sure you'll understand why.

  7. I don't have specific instructions to share. It would need to be tailored to your space. I built the hearth base with 2x4s, spaced 16" apart. Topped that with cement backer board. I built the wood stack column onto the backer board and mounted to the wall, then tiled the hearth. Final step was trim. A lot of the placement depends on your woodstove choice, chimney placement, room size, and construction materials for fire safety.
