Hello Blaze King Princess Classic Owners: We're about to purchase a BK Princess classic from our local store and I have a quick question. Does anyone have comments about the height of the wood stove opening? From a functional standpoint, have you found the fact that it sits lower than other wood stoves a good thing or something you find you're just living with (in other words, is it driving you crazy)? When we install the Princess on a hearth pad (2" thick) the opening will be significantly lower than the stove we're replacing and I haven't decided whether that's the end of the world or not. We do have some options for making the hearth pad thicker. Other suggestions would be appreciated (apart from purchasing the pedestal model (Ultra) which we we have been leaning away from for aesthetic reasons). Thanks for any perspectives you may have!
