At home by the fire

At home by the fire

At home by the fire is a guest blog written by Emily and Rob Inman with the purpose of giving an insight into life living with a Wood burning stove.

Ignite Stoves & Fireplaces supplied and installed their Charnwood Arc stove into their beautiful central Lincoln home in September 2016. Since installation the young family have been documenting their experiences and sharing with us all what life is like, living with a wood stove.

I think what a lot of people worry about when they want to install a fire is that often they think they don’t have a place for it.

And in fact, we placed our fire in a spot that had absolutely nothing special about it at all. It is simply just by a wall. OK, it’s also in the middle (ish) of the room but even that isn’t necessary.

After a much needed break through the summer and what has been gifted as a very lovely and surprisingly warm early autumn, it’s fair to say that we have only just got back into using our Stove now, in October. I can’t quite believe it if I am honest but here in Lincolnshire we have been blessed with not many cold days, and well, none consistently cold enough which have seen us light the fire every day.
