Well at long last its time to fit the range. Now the esse ironheart is about 400KG so the first problem is moving it. My top tip here is to make it lighter by removing all the door's, hot plate, and grate etc and to fit ski's. That way she will slide around a lot easier (not easily even then)
Next tip is if you do have to lift it, wherever possible use a jack!
Then of course there is the stove pipe connection to the flue liner and a frame to support the fire proof placo
Not to mention getting it level
Finally filling the hole in the chimney
So that's the esse in place on my new hearth and connected to the flue. Next time it's commissioning!
