Exploring the Transformation of a Semi Detached House with a Cream Arada Hamlet 5KW Wood Burning Stove
Nestled in the picturesque village of Felinfoel, on the northern border of Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, this semi-detached house embarked on a journey to elevate its cosiness factor and embrace the eco-friendly warmth of a wood burning stove. Neighbouring villages such as Dafen, Bryn, and Pemberton have long admired the charm of wood-burning stoves, and this project aimed to join the ranks.
Hopkins Log Burners, the specialist wood burner, multifuel, and biomass pellet stove installers, were entrusted with the task of bringing this vision to life. Here, we delve deep into the details of the wood burning stove installation that transformed this home into a haven of warmth and style.
5KW Arada Hamlet Stove In-Depth Installation Highlights
Removal and Preparation: The journey began with the removal of the existing fire surround and mantel, making way for the new centerpiece. The existing gas flue, which traversed through the attic space, was carefully dismantled to prepare for the wood burning stove. The fire recess was then meticulously boxed in with cement boards, ensuring a secure and heat-resistant foundation for the installation.
Marble Hearth Customisation: To fit the recess perfectly, the marble hearth underwent precision cutting. The attention to detail ensured that every element of the installation was tailored to perfection.
Flue System Mastery: The installation of the MI TW Pro Silver 5″ twin-wall flue system was a complex yet crucial step. It seamlessly traversed through the recess, leading up to the bedroom and eventually into the attic space. Floor brackets in the bedroom and attic ensured stability and support for the flue system.
Roof Penetration and Security: On the second day of the project, the roof was opened up to accommodate the flue system’s journey to the outside. Lead flashing was expertly fitted to create a weatherproof seal, ensuring the house remained dry and snug. Additionally, a CO alarm and data plate were installed to ensure safety standards were met.
Testing and Final Checks: With the physical installation complete, the wood burning stove and flue system underwent thorough testing to guarantee flawless functionality and safety.
