I put my second englander stove in yesterday. It went in front of our fire place. Pulling the damper out was a pita, but all and all it went well. Boy does it work well. I'm running no OAK. We burned about 1/4 to keep our house, a ranch about 1700 SQ feet, at 72F for 15 hours. It got to 32 last night! Our house is very open, but the stove did great. Didn't even have to turn the basement stove on.
