A JOY FOR HEATING & COOKING!

Antique stoves were manufactured in a number of styles and sizes. We try to maintain a large and diverse inventory of stoves to fit most needs and budgets. If you see something you like, you can contact us and we would be happy to talk about it, and/or you can make an appointment to come to the shop and look at it. If you visit us anytime from October to May our kitchen cook stove will be burning, along with one to two other heaters if its cold enough.

Our stoves are professionally restored here at our shop following a ten step process. When completed, these tough appliances are not only BEAUTIFUL, but will OPERATE in a SAFE and EFFICIENT manner.

If you already own a stove, we would be happy to service it, weather a simple repair or a full restoration. You can also trade in your stove towards one of ours.

STEP 1

We start by stocking our inventory with clean stoves. These are stoves with minimal rusting and very few, if any damaged or missing parts. We are not welding together and painting a stove that’s been outside in the weeds for the last fifty years!

STEP 2

We inspect the stove and create an action plan for any missing or damaged parts. The best option is always to replace missing/damaged parts with new old stock that is original to that stove. In some instances, the parts may not be original to that model stove, but still look and fit correctly. This is why we maintain such a very large inventory of parts. Our second option is to replace parts with recast parts. The foundry we use is very reputable and produces high quality parts.  If we cant replace parts are final option is to fix them. You can weld cast iron if you know what you are doing. Having said that, we go through great lengths not to have to weld, or to weld very little.   

We inspect the stove and create an action plan for any missing or damaged parts. The best option is always to replace missing/damaged parts with new old stock that is original to that stove.

STEP 3

Stove is completely disassembled by removing every nut and bolt.

STEP 4

Nickel plated parts are set aside to be polished if possible, or sent to our professional plater who is here in Vermont.  

STEP 5

Into our sandblasting building where both sides of every part gets sandblasted down to bare metal. This is real deal sandblasting - powered by our industrial grade 185cfm Ingersol Rand air compressor.

STEP 6

Parts are cleaned and inspected one more time for any cracks which sometimes appear now that a century of polish, ash and rust has been blasted off.

STEP 7

Paint or polish? Originally, these stoves were polished, but since than, they have invented high heat stove paint. I think we are the only shop offering polish as an option. When you contact us, we can discuss the difference.    

STEP 8

Stove goes back together with all new nuts/bolts and gaskets making it as air tight as possible.   

STEP 9

Firebox is lined with a malleable firebrick that prevents parts from cracking or warping. 

STEP 10

We install all our nickel plated parts and any miscellaneous items like ashpans, towel rods or lid lifters.

ABOUT

In 2006 my wife and I purchased an old farmstead with the intention of creating a self sufficient/farming lifestyle. We had a woodlot now and harvesting and burning our own wood was going to be one aspect of our self sufficiency. Originally, our very run down 19th century farmhouse was heated with stoves, as evidenced by the two broken down, creosote stained chimneys and the numerous stove pipe thimbles going through floors and walls. The stoves were sadly, long gone. So I built two new chimneys at opposite ends of the house, one in the family room and one in the kitchen and now just needed two antique stoves to plug into them.

We had a parlor stove for the living room, but it needed restoration and we needed to buy a cookstove for the kitchen. We scheduled appointments with three antique stove shops in Massachusetts and one in Rhode Island, took a long weekend and headed out to see them. We hit it off with one dealer in particular, who had sold a stove to some friends of ours ten years earlier. He had been in the stove restoration business for over thirty years and was in the process of scaling back and looking to retire. We found a rusty cook stove we liked and now had to wait three weeks for him to restore it.

During our long ride home, we talked about just two things - How unfortunate it was, that with all its wood burning, Vermont didn’t have a professional antique stove shop! And…We should be that stove shop. So, we set out to be.

We worked out a deal to buy all of the remaining stock of stoves, which wasn’t much and all of the remaining stock of parts, which was way too much! Over the course of a year I made ten trips to his shop with my one ton dump truck and trailer to haul his "junk" (he would joke) back to Vermont. During each of those long visits, we spent our time working on stoves all day and I would bother him about stoves late into the night. This became my apprenticeship and education into everything antique stoves.  

Over the course of that year my mentor and I became good friends. We did so, for the same reasons my wife and I purchased a stove from him a year prior…he was just a good guy. He treated his customers the same way he treated everyone…joyfully and respectfully. Those are qualities we have in common and ones this shop continues.

Have no cash in the bank...but pickles in the cellar. What a year for cucumbers here!  

July 18 2015

My first weekend to open up to cut firewood...and its the hotest weekend of the year! Live trees cut now will still have time to season if split and stacked under cover. But I would much rather be in the woods in January.

July 3 2015

Wow, another cylinder stove find in Vermont already. This one a Stewart Oak. One of the legs is cracked bad...no problem, I will send a good leg out to a foundry for a recast! See pic in Available Stoves.

June 7 2015  

Planted our potatoes this weekend, fall will be here before we know it and we will be digging these beauties up. It seems like its been a cooler May/June, been firing the cook stove up still some mornings. Reminder that I need to stop putting other projects ahead of firewood.

May 2015  

Just picked up a Splendid Oak 29 cylinder stove. With every stove I find, there is always a negative attribute to the experience. With this one, stove was great, but it was in a basement!  Its been a while since I had a basement job…drew a little blood lugging this one out. See pic in Available Stoves.

May 2015

I am more often than not finding out at this stage in life that if you wait to have it all figured out before you take on a project, you will never take on any projects, because you will never have it all figured out.  Case in point, our batch of chicks we just brought home a few weeks ago. I never was quite certain what I was going to do with them when they outgrew the brooder box in our kitchen. We have a chicken coop proper, a very nice one indeed.  But our two year old hens and rooster, I am sure would not take kindly to these little buggers.  So, when I could no longer stand all their incessant cheeping and scratching during the night, I finally figured out a solution…for now.  

April 2015  

Still burning quite a sum of wood.  We have had the family room stove shut down for some time now, but the cook stove is still burning at pretty much a constant rate.  Each time I haul a large pile of wood to the house, I think it’s the last, but it doesn’t turn out to be.

March 2015

My wife makes phenomenal flour tortillas.  As a gift to her (and really to me too) I just restored this Griswold griddle to use on top of the cook stove. After cleaning, it got re-seasoned inside the oven of our cook stove.  Somehow, the tortillas are coming out even better!
