"Oldest Cabin in Geogia." This is the fireplace, without much of a hearth. I believe it is because it was used to cook in. The actual fireplace is sunken, and many bricks gone from the interior part of it. The original mantle here is leaning against the ruins of the fireplace precariously. This surprised me. If someone would remove it, why leave it? Perhaps it was not "pretty" enough. There had to have been a woman involved in decorating and designing this house. There are too many details (paned windows and wallpaper with flowers) that speak of a feminine influence. You can even see how beautiful the floor must have been at one time. It was painted white.

Color Consultation After
This is the living room after my color consultation. Notice the difference it made to paint the fireplace, and how the faux painting in the adjoining dining room really stands out more. The new "coral" shade accents the furniture and accessories in the room as well.

The Book of Masonry Stoves: Rediscovering an Old Way of Warming
Within the past decade, millions of Americans have discovered the economic benefits and personal pleasures of heating with wood. At the same time, many have discovered that there are serious problems associated with wood heat and iron stoves: chimney fires from creosote, air pollution from poor combustion, and structural fires caused by faulty stove installation. The masonry stove, widely used in Europe and Asia for centuries, surmounts these problems.
Masonry stoves offer good solutions to many of the problems associated with wood burning. They provide clean combustion at a high temperature, good efficiency, a high degree of safety, and little or no pollution. Masonry stoves require little care, needing to be fed only once or twice a day. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes from simple to elegant and from austere to gothic. And they are easily adapted to a variety of structures including solar designs.
The Book of Masonry Stoves represents the first comprehensive survey ever published of all the major types of masonry heating systems, ancient and modern. Detailed plans and building information are included in the book. As a complete introduction to masonry stoves, it will help many people rediscover an old way of warming, using masonry stoves.
