    where are you going to store your splits? Inside in a ring next to teh fire or outside. Might look nice with jsut a wood box next to the stove someplace

    Those stoves looks great. You will love them even more once it's 30 deg. out there. Just a note about the smell- my stove- cast iron Avalon Arbor smelled for quite a few burns. I can't remember exactly, but it was definitely over 10 before it got better.

    I am in the market for a stove and the Craftsbury one of our top choices. Your installation pics make me even more excited about this model.

    The one question I have is does the soapstone bricks make any difference in this model?
    Does it take longer to warm up?
    Does it retain and radiate heat longer?

    Any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I haven't really burned but a small break-in fire so I can't answer most of your questions. I don't think the soapstone bricks will make much defference. I consider this a cast iron stove.
