Now it is time to wheel it in there. First, we laid the hand truck on its wheels, and we tied it off to a stud in side, just in case it should come flying back for any reason. My one son pulled with the rope, my other son pulled the hand truck, and I pushed it up.

Well, so much for the soapstone being hard to get out lol. Some fell out when we tipped it sideways, and I left two small fire bricks in there by accident. The one small brick actually broke. No big deal, but should have been more careful.

I had other camp duties to attend to (first day I have been able to drive in since Fall). I did all of that and took the rest of the day off! :)

On the second day, I took the old wood stove out and began working on the hearth. This meant I would be "roughing it" that night because the temps were to get down to 28F. I still had other camp duties to do, plus an unscheduled stop to the local hardware store as I brought the wrong thinset with me. However, I did get everything done. :)

Good thing I remeasured here. I had a brain cramp and for some reason thought I needed to make the hearth 13 inches longer than necessary. That's why they say to measure twice. :)

Today I trimmed off the excess cement board and then grout the tiles. My shop vac bit the dust, but otherwise, everything went pretty smooth. I think almond was the right choice on the grout. :)

Next weekend, we will actually get the new stove installed.

How appropriate that the photo immediately following the beer photo is blurry.

My brother and my sons went up to the yurt last night just to get the stove on the pad. My brother and I are going to get it installed and fired today.

Okay, I just got back from our weekend. The install went well. We had temps of 20 degrees F and 30 degrees F each night. The first night I set the damper rather high (50%) and I had to reload it about 7 hours later. The next night I set it near 25% and 10 hours later it was still pretty comfortable in the yurt when I woke up (68 degrees) but the fire was down to coals.

That is a lot of variation on just a small change. I am thinking that after I use this stove a while, I should be able to get it to 12 hours @ 20f outside. I just have to get better at using a catalytic stove. I am learning a lot.

Here are some more pics:

Re: New Woodstove For The Yurt
Good job Jafo. That stove is a real piece of work. I like the supply air to it. BIG improvement over drawing air from inside the yurt. Sweet. Thanks for the thread and the details.
