We have a fireplace in our livingroom that is tooo small for an insert. We have the room to place a free standing pellet stove in the same room off in a corner. This is ok with us since we can use the fireplace in case of a power outage, but looking ahead will it hurt us when ws go to sell the house (which isnt anytime soon)? Does anyone here have a fireplace and a stove in the same room? We were thinking about putting the free standing stove in front of the fireplace and vent it out the chimney but that would take up space that is needed for the walkway since the fireplace is on an inside wall.
