Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 1200 | House Size (Sq feet): 1800
Bought in 2006 , Price Paid: $75-used
Location : Lakes Region, NH , USA
Purchased from: Other Store Type (Furniture/etc) -

Likes: Clean burn, good combustion design and engineering, nice convective heating

Dislikes: Small firebox, definitely not an all night burner, clunky aesthetics

Comments: I grabbed this at a yard sale for $75. Some paint and parts later and we got a great little stove for our large living room and dining room area. The combined area of the rooms is about 1,200 SF and that is pretty much the limit of the stove. You definitely need to cut smaller wood (~14") if you want to pack it north-south but so far I'm pretty pleased.
