Hi All, I've been perusing this site for a while and look forward to joining in some warm fireside chats! Especially the warm part...because as I type my fingers are cold enough to make it a bit of a challenge. So, a bit about me. My name is Cinnamon and my husband and I just moved to an old farmhouse in the mountains ~ 4500 ft elevation. We are thrilled, but the house is cold and leaky. It has a pellet stove and propane wall heater. We learned the hard way not to use the propane heater-$$$$$ . Anyway, we are looking to build a sustainable farm. We want to heat primarily (or exclusively) with wood from the property or surrounding forest--pines and oaks. We have been working on our remodel plans for a while and are thinking Jotul or hearthstone stove in the garage conversion and a Heat n' Glo Northstar or Napolean (I'm thinking NZ3000, but the guy up here recommended the NZ6000) fireplace in the living room. Anyway, I was hoping to get some input on these or other options. I can post a proposed remodel floor plan, if that helps. I looked at the suggested size of uploads, but if I make it smaller the dimensions aren't legible. Thanks in advance, Cinnamon.
