    50% increase over what I have today, which heats my place. Maybe too much for me...? Say it isn't so...

    Depending on the "self regulating" feature, the extra capacity may simply translate into longer burn times.:)

    Depending on what they end up using to control the a/f ratio I may be trying to explain another stove purchase to my wife. ;lol Another plus would be a stove that only requires ember protection for the hearth.

    A front-loading Woodstock? I'm all ears.

    I would sure like the option of installing this on my hearth but it looks too tall.
    I hope Woodstock has the good sense to provide for different height installs.
    The only reason for such long legs that I can see if to ease loading on floor level installs.
    If you're installing on an elevated hearth you don't need the long legs.

    Not the only reason, I'd imagine the taller the stove the less R value the hearth is going to need.

    Yep... not the comment above, in regard to ember-only protection.

    Did I hear 3.3 cuft???????

    It does have a sort of "commercial" or "industrial" appearance though.

    Yup!

    Unless they somehow screw this up (it looks like a 6" flue collar), this might be your solution.

    I'm interested as well. The VC stoves are only going to last for so long. 3.3 cu ft, 6" flue, with better air controls than the Progress sounds like it could be a great option for those that need more than the Princess but do not want the 8" connection... Like yourself.

    Well, the Progress can be made with shorter legs. Perhaps this option will also be available.

    Looks like a real beauty of a stove ! Hey maybe it will come with all the C-Clamps too I could always use those. Lol

    I was hoping for a small one for my dining room. Still an interesting stove though.

    Just looks like the legs were an afterthought. Probably just me.>>

    I think the design will be tweaked before they are done.

    I'm with you on this. I also have an elevated hearth, and some flexibility would be a great option. Looking to pull the trigger on a Fireview, but now I wonder if I should wait. House is 1600 sq ft. rancher with the stove on one end. Burning an Englander 13-nc and it's ok. Short burn times. Wondering?!?!

    I'm sure you're right.
    I just hope they tweak those hokey lookin' legs off of there.
    Should be an awesome stove once complete.

    I think it's going to keep a pretty industrial look when I read this. "The styling of the Union Hybrid stove pays homage to American Industry and Manufacturing by incorporating an industrial design aesthetic."
    I think those legs fit that description pretty good, I personally like it.

    IMO that's really ugly. Sorry Woodstock.

    Gotta agree . . . always found the Fireview and other models a little too ornate for my tastes . . . this one on the other hand is a 180 degree step in the other direction with something that is very plain Jane and a little too industrial for me.

    I still really like the looks of the PH . . .

    Begreen, BrowningBAR, Beetlekill, this might be my answer to the stove I need. 6", rear vent?, variety of leg heights, over 3 cu ft, soapstone, cat, etc????

    I think I will hold off on my decision until I can hear more about this stove.

    That's why so many different stoves are available, not everyone likes the same things. I personally don't like the look of a soapstone stove and would never own one. This one with likely have some soapstone accents which I can live with. With this stove I don't think they're going after the same customer that would buy their soapstone stoves. This will open them up to an entirely different customer base imo which is pretty smart.

    I think it's a bit premature to complain about looks. A few photos of a steel prototype in the test lab, and a drawing, do not represent a whole lot.
