Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 260 | House Size (Sq feet): 1800
Bought in 2001 , Price Paid: 2400.
Location : Westlake, OH 44145, USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Hearth and Home Garrettsville OH

Likes: Installed easily with the help of friends in a couple of hours. Also using a Homesaver UltraPro 316i Liner. Very easy to start and maintain a steady heat. Bypass control stops smoke from entering room when loading/reloading.

Dislikes: None so far.

Comments: Year purchased is Jan 2004. Options include Solid Brass door and Blower. So far so good. Very simple to operate. Burn time so far with seasoned oak is close to 7 hours, not the 10-12 posted, but still tweaking it. Would purchase again. Dealer very helpful and accomodating.
