Ever since we moved to our new house in Grand Blanc, we have
been planning to get an outdoor wood-fired boiler for primary heating source.
Well, we have finally had one put in!
It is made by Heiss Heaters, a company based out of Grand Rapids.
Here are some pics of the installation prep:
|Getting forms ready for the pad|
|We used 40 bags of cement|
We dug a trench from the cement pad to the house for the water line
|We love the Ditch Witch!|
We also have been cutting and stacking many cords of wood for the heater :)
|Our work truck really has come in handy|
|The lumberjacks - with a very, very small portion of our firewood :)|
|Laying the pipe in the trench|
|The boiler weighs 7,500 lbs.|
|"How big can we go?"|
|Can you see us? Between stacks of firewood?!?|
We are thankful that the Lord provided the resources for this money-saving
furnace, which will enable us to be better stewards of what we have been given.
