Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 400 | House Size (Sq feet): 2000
Bought in 2006 , Price Paid: 3300
Location : Lafayette, CO 80026, USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Boulder Stove and Flooring

Likes: Good resale value (I hope)

Dislikes: Overnight burn = black glass in morning, always. Rarely can burn without the door being open. Door interfere's with ash shelf (due to after thought of brass trim). Airwash of glasss is nonexistent unless the air control is all the way open. Cant open door without filling house with smoke (bypass open or closed doesn't matter).

Comments: I regret buying this stove. The (new) chimney is a straight shot of 20' double walled pipe so you can't blame the chimney. I was burning well seasoned Oak and Pine but I am no longer using the stove because I got tired of having a smoke filled house or a fire that would just smolder until it went out.
