Love it - plain and unadorned, functional and beautiful. And yes, your wood will disappear in the blink of an eye. From a first timer who is learning the hard way.....
Oooh, winter log fires...lovely!
That is one gorgeous stove.
Useful and beautiful....... ;O)
I don't know which I am most envious of, the fireplace or the log pile...
Turf, when a bit damp, lasts about half as long again as turf from the shed, and gives a lovely glowing sort of deep warmth - perhaps the same is true of logs to make them last?
Your house is lovely.
Each so serene and warming.
I desperately miss having a house with fire this winter
