Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 320 | House Size (Sq feet): 1500
Bought in 1994 , Price Paid: 200
Location : Serres sur Arget, , France
Purchased from: Other Store Type (Furniture/etc) - second hand

Likes: Looks great. Heats fine and burns very efficiently. Keeps fire overnight, even after 10 hours it is only a matter of opening the air intake and adding a little wood to get it blazing.

Dislikes: Our logs are often a little to long, so a 2" wider door would be nice.

Comments: We got this stove second hand for only 200 euro in 1994. It seemed brand new at that time. We have used for pleasure for 10 years. Now we have moved to the French Pyrenees we use it as main our heatsource, and we love it.
