    I have a feeling it will look good enough for most peoples homes once it's finished and released. The PH wasn't all dolled up when it's first photos were posted.

    That's my hope too, though the initial drawings for the PH were more promising. The PH is neutral enough to fit in a wide range of decor. So far the Union looks best for an Arts & Crafts or steampunk styled interior. We'll know better when they post the CAD drawings.

    My wife and I are in the same camp. The soapstones are great stoves but we just can't warm up to their looks for some reason.

    As solid a company as Woodstock seems to be, and as much as I want to own one, I'm not very fond of their designs either. Except the Progress. More understated.

    And it's not a soapstone thing either. I think the Hearthstone soapstone designs are excellent. Less ornate.

    I think Woodstock will be back logged on orders for their new stove,,, reasonably priced, a big fire box, a front loader, and all of Woodstocks great service! Think I'm wrong? Well I remember the PH had a waiting list.. Lets say this... when there is pride involved ,, involving a small stove company,, I would say that your are going to see a very unique stove when it's all said and done.. I can't picture Woodstock just coming out with another stove that's like another stove that's already on the market.. Maybe I'm wrong,,, but I think everyone will say wow!

    It's not all that ugly. I saw a picture of a 1955 Westinghouse front load washer -- something like this


    painted black with a stove pipe on top.

    Oops, my bad, it wasn't a washing machine, it was a BK princess.;)

    From what I've heard from the folks at Woodstock, after having install my Progress a couple months ago, is that the Union is definitely a more affordable price-point. I couldn't wait.

    You would have to actually put forth extra effort to make a stove as ugly as a BK. Those things don't happen by accident.

    Looking forward to the new stove. The WS blog, once you navigate to it around their broken link, is pretty old. We need some new pics.

    Hey Highbeam, where's the broken link? Is it on the Blog page or our home page? We are working on updates and will post as soon as possible!

    Right here:

    http://woodstove.com/

    On the homepage. The "blog" box in the upper right is no worky. The headings are overlapping too. Just needs some tuning. Woodstock has always had a pretty good site with lots of good articles that even apply to non-WS burners.

    From what I was told they are maybe shooting for a 2000 dollar price range.. Maybe it will even be under that..

    That isn't much less than the FV.. Bottom line buy what works and looks best to you..

    I already got a taste of the stone heat so my sights are on trading up to the Progress Hybrid...One thing I like about the stone,, it's like having storage batteries.. Having a smaller fire that burns down will still produce nice heat life out of the stone,, so your not exposing you room air to a cold steel stove because the fire has been burned down for a while,,, you retain a more positive heat output from the stone.. My Fireview proved that to me.. when my Quadrafire's wood was gone ,, you knew it...by just walking in the room.. So I think their new stove will catch the attention of a person who doesn't care for a stone stove as much...Looks like Woodstock will be appealing to a more diversified group of wood burners... If I'm not mistaking the Union Hybrid is going to have soapstone inside...

    Seems to be working fine on our end. What browser are you using? Anyone else having issues with our site? Let me know and I'll get the entire IT team on it : )
