Comments: I replaced my OLD Ashley Console with this Kuma Tamarak.
To date I am Extreemly Satisfied with my Choice. I have a long narrow living room and the close tolerance (6\") to the rear of unit was a large selling point.
With the large firebox on my old stove, I was able to use large 21\" chunks of fire wood, Now I have to recut and split my remaining cache of wood down to 16\", But hey it\'s quality time my 14 yr old son and 12 yr old daughter and I can have doing it. I\'m lucky enough that they enjoy doing it with me.
I feel fortunate to have stumbled onto this Company and feel anyone looking for built in the \"USA\" Can and will find a stove that will meet and by far exceed most expectations. Visit kumastoves.com
