Masonry and the Mason

If you are going to have a wood stove you need a heat shield that will soak up the heat from the stove and radiate it out to the room.  This is super easy to build when you have a generous soul living with you who has been a stonemason for most of the time that you have been alive (I might have just made up that fact but he’s been a stonemason for a very long time).  So that’s what our episode is about today: the building of our stone wall that will be behind the wood stove out of stones we had in our yard by our Farmer in Residence Tim Peregoy.
