Hi folks. Our home is a Victorian stone-built townhouse on two levels. It has high ceilings and is mainly composed of individual rooms, rather than open-plan*. I am wondering how many people in these forums have such a compartmentalised home (if that's the right phrase) and how they go about heating it with wood. The way I see it, unless it's open plan, it's difficult to get the heat from one room to travel to others - especially given the high ceilings (which are 3' or more above the tops of the doors, which means that there's a 3'-by-x-by-y volume to heat fully before any heat will leave the room. We're looking at adding a second stove - probably an inset wood burner or gas - into our 'good' room (i.e. the posh room with the cornicing etc.) which is 18'x16'x11' with four double glazed hardwood sash'n'case windows along one wall. At the moment there is a living flame open gas fire which is cozy but I believe very inefficient. If we go to the hassle of changing this I would like to be able to spread some of the heat around if possible. Any thoughts? John * the only open-plan area being the room into which we put the Morso, which is open onto a conservatory and kitchen.
