I think that everyone enjoys wood burning stoves, but I am just not one of them. My hubby and I built a home many years ago, and he asked me then if I would be happy with installing a wood stove to heat the house. I told him that I didn’t want a wood stove, and that I would rather have an oil furnace… After various years of use, our oil furnace broke down on us, so we started looking into buying a new one. Everyday for the past two weeks, my hubby has mentioned something about how much he wants a wood stove or how much he loves wood stoves. I decided to just go ahead and give it a try. The reason I don’t particularly like wood stoves is because of all the work that is involved in keeping them burning all the time. I told my hubby that as long as he did all of the work involved in running as well as maintaining a wood stove I would let him instal it. Of course, he was happy and promised to do all of the work on his own. I genuinely hope he will keep to his promise because I don’t want to do it. Just last year, we had the wood stove installed, and well, to my surprise, it looks genuinely nice in our home. It goes with the farm home theme. I like the odor of the wood burning, so I hope that if I don’t have to do any of the work, I will learn to like having it.
