    image.jpg Found cheap yet nice stove on craigslist. Found free bricks various sizes to make hearth pad. What y'all think ? I'm excited for night fires bigtime plus saving on propane or elec heat.

    So my old friends (roofing crew) suck which sucks :(
    They totally half assed my roof. Ignored my requests for additional options and took all my $ back in September - and still didn't pipe up my stove.
    I'm done helping these scammers.
    I helped them loads, they helped me too but I always pay $ or weed or mushrooms.
    Fudge them and excuses.
    Roof has bitch ass rubber Matt over it Ghetto trailer roof over my decent metal roof.
    I also now cannot side house, OR cannot put gutters on long sides either!
    Water on bad siding is WORST ISSUE I HAD. What pricks to half ass it.
    It was $2k loss.
    And hot damn, I just bought stove pipe plus new pimp rain cap, and three pairs of tin snips plus bottom end piece for UNDER $100.
    What a bunch a crooks.
    If I look up price of rubber Matt and glue at store ima prolly fuk up roofers so I'm letting $2k rubber roof slide.
    I hope they do not ask me for favors.
    I have epic amounts of work for good ppl
    They lost bigtime.
    End rant.
    Apologies lol

    I got new ppl who help way more.
    I make it worth anyone's time to help me.
    Just hate being scammed.
    The roof crew ditched me a few times before I shuda got new roofer crew.
    If they were my friends they wuda gave my $back or asked for more to do it right.
    I told boss guy I didn't want shitty job.
    Only if they'd take time.
    They took least amt of time possible.
    Kinda dread seeing it after the snow melts.

    I'm leaving it as is for this winter, but going to order double wall black pipe for it to be more "at code" specification. Just works great I think it may heat too much or too easy lol. It's also excellent backup now for power outages. A $3k generator is in the works but this yr we will be ok with wood stove , plus I bought a big buddy heater with 40lb propane tank. I hate when power goes out in winter in middle of nowhere. Big relief with these new systems.
