|Our Rais Stove|
We debated a fireplace or wood burning stove when we were designing this place. We loved the thought of an open fire, but knew that a wood burning stove would be so much more efficient. Then I ran across this stove (Rais out of Sweeden) on line ... best of both worlds. We can see the fire, but it's completely enclosed, which makes it both safer and more efficient.
It quickly heats up the main room and there is usually a dog lying in front of it ... they are convinced we put the extra throw rug there for them to lie on ... not as added protection for the area rug.
Good thing I am married to the expert fire builder!
Have a great weekend!
