Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 240 | House Size (Sq feet): 1300
Bought in 1997 , Price Paid: 400
Location : portsmouth, ri 2871, usa
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - stovepipe

Likes: Fits anywhere, plus took stove w/ me when I moved.

Dislikes: Tiny firebox--no surprise in a tiny stove. You must be willing to fill the stove frequently if you're planning to run it at the high end of its heat output.

Comments: This stove has been a superb choice for my needs. I wanted more efficiency than an open fireplace, but I wanted to see the flames too. I bought this stove for use as auxillary heat, and for "creature-comfort" quality. I consider my money well spent
