Yes indeed, we now have heating…..even though there are a few teething problems, mainly caused by an Italian handbook being read by an English technophobe and translated to a Non Italian speaker who does not usually deal with fires except in a BBQ sense. For the first time ever it is now warmer inside than out! Not necessarily a bad thing as those of you who have been here in the summer will know, but it is nice to know that if winter ever gets to this part of the world we will not freeze. It is a rather natty wood burning stove that (in theory and maybe practice!) will run our heating and hot water as well as give us a roaring fire to stare into in those long evenings! We should be able to run it on wood from our land…..Trouble is, we had to buy wood as we have not been able to collect enough and it was delivered in the middle of three days rain! It is not keen to be burnt now! Back up plan of wood pellets is being used rather earlier than we thought!
