Today Mom and I had to go to Missouri to get a new old Wood burning stove for the kitchen. Ours had two cracks in it and it had been repaired once already but not very well. These cracks caused it to smoke alot.
When we got it home we had to get it out of the back of the truck. This thing is heavy and it wasn't easy. We loaded it from the truck onto the carry all of the tractor and drove it to the back door.
This is the old one we had to take out ... Nothing like moving two really heavy things in one day. Dad sure did have a red face. This is the old one
We removed it and put the legs on the new one and then fit all the pipe to it.
Mom started treating the bit of rust on it and she said she would have it looking like new in no time. This summer she plans on painting it with high temp paint so that it really will look brand new.
We all are just glad that we won't have to have smoke in the house everytime you try to start a fire. Mom also said that it won't have to have the doors closed all the time so it will heat the kitchen better then the old one. I am just happy it is done. I ended my day getting to go rope inthe practice pen. Mom always let me have time to play after the work is done. It is kind of our Motto here... LOL
