Have a chance on a used Fireview, 5 yrs. old, asking $600, good deal? I haven't seen it yet, just a picture. Want to heat a 1200 sq. ft. colonial, OK insualation, good doors and windows. I've added insulation to the ceiling of the unfinished basement and plan on adding to the attaic also (HD has rolls of R30 for $10). The floor plan is somewhat open. I've got good wood, most has been cut 2 years now, mostly ash, some maple, beech and OAK. I have access to free wood also. Want to sit the stove right in front of my fireplace, would have to extend the hearth though, the hearth is level with the floor and only extend out 14". I'll add 24". Thanks for the input.
