While we were out of town, a man who works for my husband started the rock wall that will go behind the stove. Hubbie will finish it this weekend & the stove should be installed this week!
With all due respect to Buckminster Fuller, one serious drawback to living in a geodesic dome is the dilemma of where to put a wood stove. The stove pipe has to extend so far above the roof, it is difficult to put one along the parameter of the house. The center, where the ceiling is the highest, is really the only place that works. Unfortunately, it is the spot that requires the most stove pipe to vent! Added with the professional installation required to make the insurance company happy, this has been an expensive project; however, it will be one that will pay for itself in a few years.
