    Just finished having it installed. Been using it for the last few days and it really kicks out some heat. It is a small 4KW burner. Wanted a contemporary look for the new build we live in and been really pleased with it so far. Was just a bare wall to start with and we had an electric fire on there for the last couple of years. Already had a class one chimney.

    Some photos, role on the snowy weather:

    Perfect for this time of year. So warm and cozy! :)

    I sometimes miss our coal fire in our old house. There was something about snuggling up and staring at a burning fireplace that made you feel all content and peaceful.

    Looks good mate - I prefer wood burners over electric fires! Much more homely and they give off heat like there's no tomorrow.

    (Cue the 'it's a fire' responses.. lol)

    The wooden mantlepiece is far too light - it stands out like a sore thumb.

    Waste of time. Far easier to just go around in a van and pick up left over wood and let it season out the back under shelter.

    Got a log burner at home, lovely and warm. Parents overuse it though. My dad likes fire a bit too much. Far better than that timer electric heater at university though.

    Cheers for the positive responses :)

    Bit modern for my tastes to be honest but you can't beat a woodburner, my local has one and my god it chucks out some heat.

    Not a chance, my parents just replaced their open fire with a log burner, the log burner is a vast improvement, especially in regards to warming the house rather than losing all the heat up the chimney.
