My home came with a woodstove in the middle of the home office.
The TV had to be put in a corner since the wood stove was centrally located and stuck out.
It made everything believe cramped and smaller. I hated the wood stove because it was ugly and not genuinely functional. After a peek inside I realized the previous owner didn’t even use it. The guy vented it through the ceiling and even added a stack to the roof. It could be used, he just never did. It sat on a brick pad that the home office rug was chop around. I hated it so terrible and never used that furnace. One day I decided enough is enough. I knew it would be valuable even though I wanted the gas furnace gone. The home had a central heating method so it was pointless. It took up space and I could genuinely get money for it. I had to get roofers to disaffix the addition on the roof. I needed to patch our wood ceiling where the vent went. I then had to enlist help to transport the cast iron gas furnace and then sell it online. Some guy got the gas furnace for his hunting shack. It apparently is too small to be a home heater. My local Heating and A/C contractor scoffed at it. Even once the gas furnace was gone, I had work. I needed to disaffix the brick pad and our home office rug. I then bought a up-to-date rug to cover the whole floor completely. After all that was done, I finally had the home office that I wanted.
