    Heres my F500 Oslo I put in last year.It replaced my tired old Russo.
    It's in my family room that has an 18ft vaulted ceiling (see other post).I picked it up in the fall 2004 new for $1,399.00
    It can heat 70 % of my house....so far this year from August05 to Feb06 I have burned 132 gallons of oil.
    and just about 3 cords of wood.The stove paid for itself last winter where I only used 186 gallons of oil and all the wood I picked up for free................Burn wood it saves $$$$$$$$$$$$

    its selkirk double wall (6 inch form combustables) all the way up to the HT Metalbestos ....but yeah, compared to running the old stove in the basement of my parents place......It is one supercharged draft......
    If anyone is interested heres a shot inside the prefabbed chimney my Uncle and I built on the roof.

    Between the clearance of the Beam, the wall behind...and the new laws (especially Carbon monoxcide) Had to use double wall.The draft is not really insane or out of control...its just super easy to light fires.....
    especially on cold days and really damp ones.
