Well I have just had some spare time to get the wood stove in I AM TOTALLY IMPRESSED! Thank you for re-directing me to use the PACIFIC ENERGY stove, I can now effectively heat my home with control and a hell of a lot less wood. I am very stoked about this stove (pun intended lol)

again, thanks for all your help.

Hi again Alex,

Got a few pictures from my brother of the finished product, which he took for me last weekend. Please pass along our sincerest thanks to Ray for a magnificent job. We are delighted with it, he is truly an “artist” and we love his creation for us and the “special” stones he inserted. We would recommend Friendly Fires to anyone seeking this kind of work and we’d be sure to tell them to get Ray if they can. Please tell him I think of him every time I hear of our soldiers in Afghanistan and we shall also be reminded of him every time we light that fireplace and sit and gaze at the natural artwork it brings to the room. I appreciate your considerable efforts to expedite this for our family.

I have to express how much you guys live up to your company name. You guys have been nothing but awesome, and we really appreciate how excellent we have been treated from purchase, to the WETT inspection, with trying to locate parts and getting them and everything. Please pass on a huge Thanks to Hayley and Alex as well as yourself and a big high five to everybody at Friendly Fires. Thanks again!

Hi Alex,

Here’s a shot of our finished fireplace. Thought you’d get a kick out of it. As you can see, we opted not to paint it since it blended in nicely the way it was. Leigh had the idea to add the marble border & I think she made the right call. All I had to do was shorten the sides.
Thanks to you and Jeff for a great job – for once, we’re almost looking forward to winter.

Hi Alex:

My mother spent the whole summer at Anstruther, and really enjoyed the new fireplace. It should have been done many years ago! Mom gets cold very easily with her age, and has used the fireplace a few times when the mornings got cold. She was amazed by the heat output, and loves the warmth it provides.

I want to thank you again for the prompt and professional installation, and will recommend your services to anyone who enquires.

Thanks very much Duane,

I did register online with them previously. I will get the part and if have a problem will contact you for install. I must compliment you and the two gentlemen that showed up to repair my stove. They were very professional and appeared at the time promised. This is such a rarity in service today. Good for you and your business. I am in a service business as well and I appreciate how difficult but also how important this can be to accomplish. Best of luck, you have our future business

Sincerely, Dennis T.
