    Go take a peek at them and measure while you're there. You could also put a small jog in the flue if need be. Those prices aren't too bad either, I'm sure there's room to work with them as well.

    Resistance is futile... :cheese:

    Are you trying to heat the entire house or just a portion of it?

    I personally don't think a 40K btu stove like the Princess will be large enough to heat the entire house. It will help a good deal, but I think many are discounting the wind. Wind strips the btus out of a house... especially with the large windows and french doors, etc. Also, the stove isn't going to be putting out 40K btus for the entire burn cycle.

    The downside is you could easily heat a room to the point of being uncomfortable with a large stove.

    Modest sized house in the PacNW requires a lot less winter heat than central NY. Still, I like having the big guns when it gets cold. The Alderlea is a good fit for this climate.
