I am eventually going to put a stove in my bedroom fireplace. Original plan was to put a propane set in, as we already have propane to the two ranges in the house. However, I am not sure how easy it would be to route pipe up to the fireplace without doing some demolition. As well, I undeerstand its not cheap to run one of those suckers ($1 an hour). Anybody know a real small pellet stove, or maybe a hand fired coal? Fireplace is full size, with full mantel, and everything, and my bedroom is the old dancing room for the inn, so its not small. But I don't need a huge stove to roast us out. I'm going corn and wood for the house, but would have no objections to a small bit of a third fuel supply (pellts or coal). Just a pipe dream right now, making plans for the future. My bed is right near the fireplace, so I don't want a screamingly loud pellet blower, but pellets/corn are the cleanest fuel to carry into the house, and I could keep standardized fuel supplies (sorta). Also, I like the ability to thermostatically control it, and even turn it off, without having to wait 12 hours till the coal burns out. But coal is a great fuel, and burns with a deep warmth. Ah well, it'll be two-three years before I can even think about it, as expensive as those suckers are. Any ideas?
