  1. Go Charlotte! I love the final touch of showing your scratch paper – it’s a perfect complement to the photos an drawings. It makes sense that it comes in a flash, and what a helpful insight, that it’s really all just boxes!

    1. Thanks for your kind words Lynn. Yup. Boxes. And now I am thinking about learning how to build a new kind of box – one with legs – a table. And my notes on scratch paper – I have so many I could wallpaper a room with them!🙂

  2. I know I’m 3 years late but thank you so so much for this!!! You give me hope that I can accomplish this with the help of a friend.

    1. Hi Anna! You can accomplish this. Seriously! Think it through, plan it out and do it and when it’s done, step back and you get to say, “I did that!” No better feeling. I’m excited for you! Thanks for the note and happy building!🙂

    1. Wow! Good question, we bought it in 2003 so off to the box that has our manuals in it to find out, and, ta dum… It’s a gas, Majestic Vermont Castings Direct Vent model DVRT 36, which is a 36″ firebox. It was also sold in a 39″ and 43″ model. Hope that helps!🙂
