    Hello gang. I'm SO impressed with the amount and quality of information on this site! Very glad I found you!

    We've just finished building a cottage in Ontario. We're located on an island, and our woodstove will be our main heatsource. Not planning to use the cottage in the winter (right now), but certainly want to keep our options open. Cottage is a 1200 sq.ft. bungalow.

    I like the Euro-contemporary styling of the Alterra CS models and the Drolet Deco. Would be interested to find out if you recommend one over the other ... or if you think we should go a different way. Budget is always a concern, of course, so have to keep that in mind.

    Looking forward to your reply! :) Thx!

    If this is going to be your primary heat source I would look at the Blaze King Chinook 20 first and the price tag second. A Pacific Energy Fusion would be my second choice.

    As an alternative that is not really contemporary, but is good looking I would add the Woodstock Keystone stove to the mix.

    We have the Regency Alterra CS1200 and I am still amazed at how much heat it provides for our relatively small sized house. It is stylish, easy to learn to use, safe and efficient. No regrets whatsoever. If we had larger home we would go to the CS2400 but that thing would be way too much now.
