Starting off in Jan 2021 with a covering of the white stuff, not milk.... snow.
How pretty Troutbridge looks.
With the ruff weather we are having, work on Troutbridge is being held up a little, but saying that Phil managed to get the chance to weld into place the base for the stove, lift in the slab, then he fabricated out of steel, a hearth around the slab to stop any of that naughty hot ash setting fire to the floor boards.
Painted for now with red oxide, but later on I'll give it a covering with heat resistant paint. We are just waiting for some fire rope to be delivered an soon the flue can be fitted. A rebuild of the inside (taken out due to moving it about) Then we will be giving it a try.
