Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 600 | House Size (Sq feet): 1200
Bought in 2005 , Price Paid: 750.00
Location : Harrisonburg, VA 22801, USA
Purchased from: Home Center/Hardware - Lowes

Likes: Not a bad looking stove. That is absolutely all I can say that\'s positive about it.

Dislikes: Poorly made, not in the least \"air-tight\", will not hold a fire more than 3 to 4 hours tops, cannot damp down. Intake flue is so poorly made that it does not fully cover the air intakes. Ash drawer fits poorly and collects ash all around it, which is difficult to clean out. Lousy door/window gaskets. Stone inside crumbly.

Comments: A total waste of money. I\'ve heated with wood my whole life and this is the worst stove I\'ve ever had. Might be fine if you just want to look at a nice fire a few evenings a year but don\'t try and heat a home with it. The worst $750 I\'ve ever spent.
