Stove 2

 With the ice around the boat reminding us of how nice it would be to have a stove, we spent the weekend getting it all sorted.

Simone bent this

Into this

With the help of some friendly people on the other side of the river, and then we set to making a hearth:

Armed with an actual tile cutter, borrowed from another boatfriend, this went a lot more smoothly than the first lot of tiling. After painting the flue, waiting for the paint to dry, and putting all the fire cement etc. in place, we have fire!

All of this means I now have an ongoing excuse to chop wood and use power tools. Pig in the proverbial.
