    Bought a wonderful house built in 1968. The fireplace is 48" wide by 18 3/4" tall by 22" deep.
    My local woodstove company sales rep just scratched his head and said "I'll get back to you" when he came out to the house and measured for a wood stove insert.
    We were looking at buying the Pacific Energy Vista insert, but the stove is 19 3/4 tall.
    The Quadrafire 2700i seems too large also.
    Kodiak 1200- min height 19 1/16"
    As you can see, just one more inch, and life would be warm.
    Any suggestions for a woodstove insert with less than 18 1/2 inches height?
    Enlarging the opening is not really an option...

    I feel your pain!!! That's almost the same height as my pre-fab. I think I had found an insert that might work. I'll see if I can find it again.

    My suggestion to you is to remove the top row of bricks and re position your angle iron. Most masons should be able to handle it
