'AND THE NIGHTMARE BEGINS!'
As promised, a progress report on the installation of our wood burner. Here is the AFTER photo:
The whole process took less than two hours, and contrary to popular belief, the Cypriot workmen were prompt, professional and clean.
So where is the nightmare?
Well 'nightmare' IS a bit of an exaggeration, but the worst part of the installation was when it was all fitted and in place. The boss insisted that, "We must test it INNIT!"...Bless him.
Picture this; The temperature outside is 35 degrees. I am wearing only my shorts. The doors and windows in the whole house are wide open in the hope of maybe creating a through draft to give some relief from the searing heat. The very last thing you wish to do is light a f***ing fire!!....but he did! Not a small one, (see photo). Within minutes it was cooler to stand outside in 35 degrees as opposed to the furnace temperature inside.
All that said, I am consoled by the knowledge that I definitely will NOT be cold this Winter. :)
Till next time........
Well you know I'm an Author, so you keep reading, and I will keep writing :)
