I've been reading the forums religiously for over a month now and I think I'm finally at a point where I'm ready to purchase my first wood burning stove. First, a brief introduction to my needs and wants. My wife and I recently moved to a 1956, 1100 square foot in San Diego. The home is not very tight, has a crawlspace, no wall insulation, but does have attic insulation. It already has a Class-A chimney installed so we figured what the hell, lets heat with wood! Right now we have two old gas wall heaters which I don't trust, and thus don't run. For the past month it has been in the low to mid 50's in the house when we wake up. Needless to say, the wife is demanding heat! For a stove, my wife wants something contemporary. I've searched through the forum and it seems like our best option is the Englander 50-TVL17. We don't really need overnight burns or super efficiency, since the temperature is fairly moderate (40's night and upper 50's to 60's during the day) and we certainly won't be buring 24/7. I also don't think we need a super large firebox, but the Englander is larger than most of the other European models which is nice. Now, for the "BUT"... my wife isn't 100% sold on the styling. I'm sold on the price, but I have been unable to find any other modern style stoves for less than $1k. So, and I limited to the Englander for a sub $1k modern stove? Thanks for the help! I put a paper template on the floor for the size of the Englander and the necessary hearth. Looks like a very small stove! How do I attach double wall pipe to this ceiling support box? I am guessing I'll need an adapter.
