Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 200 | House Size (Sq feet):
Bought in 1991 , Price Paid: 450.00
Location : Granville, VT 5747,
Purchased from: Other Store Type (Furniture/etc) - Mr.Stove

Likes: This little stove really puts out the heat. Takes wood up to 14 inches. I have tried coal and that works well too, but rather use wood.

Dislikes: Short burn time, about six hours max. When it is -10 and below have to get up a few times at night to tend it. This would get real tired if the room being heated was in not a camp. The view window smokes over quickly.

Comments: If you have a small area to heat and see one of these babies in good shape for a decent price buy it! Do not listen to the voices that say since it was made in Taiwan it is of poor quality.
