Refurbishing the Long House

WoodburnerAfter years of trustworthy use, heating the sauna and Long House it’s time to say goodbye and thank you to our wonderful old wood burner.

As many of you will know, over the last 18 months we’ve been steadily investing in changes to our buildings to make them safer and bring them in line with current health and safety standards.

The Long House was our first building to include sleeping accommodation, and we’re now in the process of refurbishing it to install a new wood burning stove that will be housed in a purpose-built hearth constructed at the back of the Long House.

The stove will have a new opening formed from the back into the centre of the rear sauna wall, which will will make the stove safer in terms of fire safety, and the new flue will rise up outside of the building rather than internally.

This will also allow us a better layout within the sauna with more benched area. Our new stove will heat the bedrooms as well as hot water for showers, and we’re excited about this upgrade to the accommodation at the wood.
