So I'm currently doing research to figure out which stove I want to get for when we remodel the house, and I've gotten some great help from here already. I thought I would take a different approach and see if anyone knew what my current stove was rated at as far heating capacity, because I know how that heats, and that way I could have a basis for comparison My current stove is one of those stoves that doesn't even look like a woodstove, haha. its covered in a tin shield. The stove box is sheet metal, and it has cast iron loading door and ash pan door. the ash pan is a long narrow tray that slides right out. The woodbox is lined with firebricks and is about 22" long by about 11" wide and almost 11" to the top of the fire bricks. There is a draft adjustment knob that says low...med...hi - and I don't know if it was ever automatic, but its not now, i turn it by hand. Inside the front door the company name is I think Atlanta stove company or Atlanta stove works or something like that. I forgot to look for a model number. I'll try to attach a picture of it. It was brown and beige, but I painted it black and gray. The only thing I could find online that looked similar was made by US Stove works, and was called Ashley and maybe wonderwood or something. The website said that they were rated for 1200 sq. ft. If my stove is similarly rated to these new Ashby things, then I wont need a very big stove when I move my flue to the middle of the house, because this thing seriously cranks, although burn times are ridiculously short. ok, well, thanks again for any info. you guys have been amazing!
