New contemporary stove installed and a twin wall insulated stainless steel chimney built.
Have you ever wondered what to do in an empty corner of your sitting room. There was no focal point in this room and sitting around a radiator really is not the same as sitting around a woodburning stove. With a woodburner you save money on oil too!
It has begun, we're preparing the ceiling for the installation of the new black twin wall insulated stainless steel chimney system which will serve our Jotul F163 woodburning stove.
In the loft things look a little more interesting. Some carpentry will be required before installation of the ceiling plate which will form the main support for the new twin wall flue system.
Outside we need to build our scaffold tower to prepare the roof for the new stainless steel chimney system. Quite a lot of roof tiles need to be taken off so we'd best not hang around!
The roof tiles are off and the installation engineers have started preparing for the flue system to be installed. Any loose battens or badly installed tiles around the area we are working on will be repaired.
The external work is complete and our attention has moved to the internal alterations. A chamber is created for the ceiling plate with additional support timbers fitted.
The first section of the new stainless steel chimney is supported and through the roof. It will be left in stainless steel finish outside but will be painted black inside to match the new Jotul woodburner.
In the loft everything is back in place. The insulation has been replaced around the new protective cage. The cage prevents any of the insulation or items stored in the loft from touching the metal case of the chimney and presenting a fire risk. You can just see the ventilated ceiling support plate.
Outside things are looking good too with the lead slate in place and all the roof tiles back on. They needed to be cut to fit neatly around the stainless steel chimney and mortared along the edges to stop the rain from getting in.
Outside the scaffold tower has been dismantled and the new stainless steel chimney system and roof work is complete. A cowl has been fitted on top of the chimney and guy wires with special brackets made in Fotheringhay Woodburners' workshop have been used to provide support to stop the chimney from moving too much in windy weather.
The stove is now installed and is undergoing final commissioning and handover. We are in the process of explaining to our clients how to use the stove and advising on future maintenance as part of our process of handing a new stove over.
The stove has been test fired and commissioned by Fotheringhay Woodburners and handed over to our clients.
