OK guys, I am a rookie in here but a "Master of Fire" in the Hearth Room so please be gentle I am actually very excited about getting a Lopi or Avalon Gas Freestanding Stove. I have 2 big wood stoves, Avalon Olympic and Quadra Fire 5100 insert (don't ask why I have 2 big ones...yes I know I have a serious wood stove problem :cheese: ) Here are facts: I have the Avalon Olympic in my Florida room(Family Room), mostly windows.... I have the Quadra Fire 5100 insert in my Living Room House is 2300 sq ft, ranch style house pretty much This is what I want to do. I want to either sell my Avalon Olympic freestanding and keep my Quadra Fire insert in the Living Room, or move my Avalon Olympic freestanding and have that installed outside the fireplace in the living room and therefore getting rid of the Quadra Fire 5100 insert. Where my Avalon Olympic is in the Florida room I am thinking of either the Lopi Berkshire or the Avalon Tree of Life, possibly the Sturbridge if is a lot cheaper and I want all the goodies, remote, thermostat, and accent light kit. Plus does anybody have the soapstone kit for the Berkshire Just wanted to pick people's brains here on these Gas Stoves. What I am planning on doing this fall/winter is burning the living Room wood stove 15-20 hours most days (whatever I end up doing there) and having the Gas Freestanding stove used just for the smaller Florida room and breezeway. Plus I thought I heard about some kits that can be installed inside a double wall pipe for gas so I did not have to take down any pipes. This way I can still get my wood fix and keep the wife happy with a gas stove in the Florida room Thanks for the help, I am sure I will spending a lot of time in "It's a Gas"
