We are very pleased with our lovely woodburner. It has warmed our usually chilly dining room really well and the heat keeps the hallway warm and cuts out the usual cold draught into the kitchen. It may take some time to lose the last traces of fine soot which inevitably floated into as many corners as possible. Not really surprising after 40 years of jackdaws! We are so glad you were able to come back this week and deal with a challenging project effectively.
