Hello Dear Reader,
Our living room is a busy room! It’s the only room in the house with any direct heating, although it does make the surrounding rooms warm. The chimney breast heats the dining room on the other side of the wall and either rooms upstairs on either side of the chimney breast. It’s like having a night storage heater. The central core of the house heats up and retains warmth until morning, when the house isn’t really cold.
The stove also keeps our house incredibly dry, therefore I don’t mind putting some moisture into the air as it’s soon circulated back towards the fire and dried out again. The usual sight in our living room is of our clothes drying in front of the fire. By morning, this will all be dry. Tomorrow night, I’ll iron it in the warmth of the room. I am looking forward to hanging the washing in some dry air outside.
I’m sure many stove sides look just like mine………does yours?
Love Froogs xx
