    I'm in the market for a wood stove to heat about a 1000SF home in the cascades of oregon. There is also electric heat so I don't mind if the stove is slightly underpowered for the space. We have pretty mild winters the avg winter lows are about 35F.

    I found a used Timberline on craigslist for $250 that looks like it's in good shape and has a thermostat controlled blower. Does anyone have any opinions on this stove? I'm also considering a Jotul 602C which I know is highly regarded here. Do either the timberline or the Jotul have secondary combustion? The space I have in the house is better suited to a long narrow stove shape than to a wide stove.

    Thanks for any help!

    I believe that stove is illegal to sell or install in a home in OR state.

    I know that stove is illegal to sell or install in OR state. Not OR or EPA certified.

    Are the EPA ones a lot better? Do they use less wood for the same amount of heat? I could be into that. Would the Jotul one be "legal"?

    Yes, they burn a lot cleaner and use a lot less wood. But as with all stoves, dry wood is important. The original Jotul 602 is not legal, but the Jotul 602CB is.

    That is an older clone of a Fisher stove. It's a great heater but it's not very efficient.

    It would probably drive you right out of the house as well.
