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.
Just when you start to think that winter is going to last forever February is a little reminder that there aren’t many more weeks to spring. It always starts with those first few spottings of Snowdrops; the perfect white flower to show that springtime beauty is on its way.
I cant talk enough about how many compliments our stove now brings. I feel a lot of it is to do with how we have styled it into our house in our open plan living and adding the fire is something that we never could have even imagined would change the house the way it has done. With a very minimalist take on style (well not that minimalist when all the kids stuff is out) I have found that having less out has created a much bigger and open space.
As you would expect, since having a stove installed a lot of Rob’s Christmas presents were centred around it. Obviously we got a fire shovel and log basket, Rob also got a chainsaw as he has taken wood cutting to a very serious level, but a gift we have most enjoyed is a book called The Norwegian Wood activity book.
