|Laying the hearth|
Tony's stove was removed, and a new hearth was built. Using cement board and tile, we made a safe place to set the new stove down. Checking the length of pipe, double-wall was used inside every home, then moving outside to finish the stainless on the exterior.

Once the chimney was in place, it was time to light the stove - drum roll please! The stove which Tony was using, was very basic. We educated Tony as to how to use his new stove. He was taught how to engage the combustor when burning wood, and how to move the "Fuel Selection Controller" when burning coal. Because these stoves burn both wood and coal, it is important to utilize the Fuel Selection Controller as needed.
After the installation was completed, we checked back in with Tony several times to see how he was doing. As with all beta testing, there were items that needed adjustment and some improvements were made. The overall opinion was - Success!
