I too am considering a second stove, free standing in the basement that is soon to be insulated. I've been looking and reading a lot about free standers. Did I read or hear somewhere that PE made a minor design change? Don't remember what though, maybe the baffle or possibly the door gasketing? They promote a "floating" fire box. Not sure how that works but sounds good. As prices drop a little in the next couple of months, want to make sure to get the latest revision. Like many others, just checking out all the choices out there. Might post more questions later but still catching up on other posts covering the areas I'm needing answers too. Thanks. Oh, looking at the Super 27 size or Alderlea T5.
