Hi there, new to the forum but not new to wood burning. What an informative place this is. Like the title says I'm just about to break ground on a new farm house for my family and I'm trying to decide on a stove. Up to this point my experience has been solely with pre-EPA stoves, Fisher Baby Bear, Acorn Ranger and a few others so I'm needing a little guidance on sizing. The house is a very open design with the stove located in a vaulted family room. There would be about 1900 square feet of open space to heat on the main floor and the heat from the ceiling should flow up into the second story (open to the family room) and heat all the kids bedrooms, roughly another 1000 square feet. I live in Fort Langley BC (near Vancouver) so the winter weather is fairly mild but usually wet and I'm hoping to primarily heat with the wood stove. I've been at the local dealer looking at a few stoves and he's been pointing me at the Jotul Rangeley and the Alderlea T5 both of whose looks suit my wife well. I'm thinking Alderlea T6 or Jotul F600 might be better though but I'm a bit concerned about overheating the family room. I just don't know enough about these newer stoves. I burn mainly alder, birch, and maple, all well dried. Do you think the PE Alderlea T6 would be a good stove for this scenario?
