from Frank S. in Henderson, Minnesota:
I just had to write this email. I have nothing but
praise and thanks for your people, relating to the Wood Burner Plans I
bought from GardenGrapevine.
I thought the price was a little steep, but
my Wife said, if they
seemed like good plans to get them. Well let me tell you, now
I feel like I stole the plans. And I love my Wife
for making me get
them . . . Hah !
I've used the Wood Burner for three hard
winters. Now I had to replace the
Insert. It took me 20 minutes and cost $5.00. That's the only problem
I've had, and you told me it would happen sooner or later. But the
protected Firebox Barrel still looks like new.
Your detailed plans made every step so very
simple to do, and
my two questions were answered promptly. Not by emailed text, but by a
modified Chapter which was emailed to me, and provided to new customers
to avoid the confusion which I had.
The parts cost so very, very
little compared to the price of
a commercial Wood Burner, that I'm elated. The only expensive part was
the Copper Coil to heat water. But the savings in electricity paid for
the Coil in three months, then it put money in my pocket.
I figure the Wood Burner is saving us more
than $400. every winter
and at least $50. a month on hot water. That's about $2,500 a year, or
$25,000. in 10 years. We're retired, and these extra dollars every
month are greatly appreciated.
Your design is so unique and ingenious. So
many clever details that I
would never have thought of. Your experience shows in every chapter. Every
time I put wood in it, I feel like I'm putting money in the
Bank. It's warming me on the outside, and warming me on the inside :)
You will find that I just now ordered your Creosote Chisel to keep
my stove pipe clean without getting on the icy roof. What a great idea.
sure it will be as satisfactory as the plans.
Your extremely happy customer.
