Removing the wood stove in the house

When I moved into my home in St.

Petersburg, Florida there was an aged wood stove in the family room, but the woodstove sat on a granite pad and was properly vented through my wood ceiling.

There then was a stack added to the roof, and it wasn’t pretty but it was functional; When you live in Florida, heating isn’t a requirement. The home came with a really relaxing heat pump system too. The heat pump controls both heating and cooling. There was no need for the woodstove. I found out later the previous owner was a history buff and liked the historic look of it. Well I right away got to work removing it. I had the granite pad torn up and dislinked. I then needed to patch my flooring. I then dislinked the woodstove and the piping that vented up in the ceiling. The wood ceiling was patched and had to match the rest of the wood. I then got roofers to detach the stack! Next was trying to pawn off that wood stove to someone else. Getting a Heating, Ventilation and A/C corporation to take a wood stove isn’tpossible, all the St. Petersburg Heating, Ventilation and A/C dealers told me that the wood stove was too small. It was mainly for a hunting cottage or a man cave. It wasn’t suitable for a house. What an idiot who first obtained it. I ended up selling it to a guy for a few hundred bucks. Then I was able to free up family room space and cherish that location. Who would ever want to own a woodstove in the state of Florida? That is just dumb.
