    Lots of good suggestions from my earlier post, and I appreciate it. Going with an insert would be my preferred option, but by the time everything is done, I could easily be into it for $2,500-3000. Back in 1979, I used a blower grate and got a fair amount of heat from it. Something like the Fireplace Radiator may be worth considering, since I only will be burning it a couple of times a week. They look like a decent unit. Anyone had any experience with them?

    Have you looked around for a used insert? I am currently running a Clydesdale and have considered getting a freestanding stove as of late. It's doing great but I would like just a bit more heat from it. I have some insulation to install and some drafts to seal but if I find a decent stove before all that I may sell the Clydesdale. I'll keep you in mind since I'm in southern ohio too and it would warm that room fast. Craigslist has some deals but you have to watch it like a hawk and possibly travel.
