We bought our house 4 years ago and this stove was in place. To be honest it sealed the deal for me buying the house. I grew up with only wood heat and love it. Im new to this forum, and I have been looking for help on this stove. I want to do some refurbishing work on her over the summer. This sucker bangs out heat like crazy and keeps all 1700 sq ft of the house toasty. Thanks for any help!
