Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 600 | House Size (Sq feet): 1500
Bought in 2001 , Price Paid: $1700
Location : Mayhill, NM 88339, Otero
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store -

Likes: Beautiful blue-black. Easy to operate and regulate temps.

Dislikes: Outside corners of the glass dirties within 5 minutes of starting the fire, obscuring almost 20% of the viewing area. Happens regardless of wood used- all very dry.

Comments: With a more efficient airwash sytem to keep the glass clean, this would be a spectacular stove.
