I do not know much about wedding protocol (just ask my wife) but from what little I understand, there is a one year window for gift giving. By some small miracle, I have just squeaked in before the deadline. Hope you like it, Dearheart.
Now that that’s sorted, I wanted to explain how our coal range acts as thermal mass. Its placement is such that it receives winter morning sun through a northeast window.
It then receives winter mid-day sun through the French doors. Since we are nearly 2 months past the solstice, the sun is barely reaching the hearth. On June 21st it will reach of the first 3 courses of bricks.
And afternoon sun through a northwest window.
