Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 450 | House Size (Sq feet): 1900
Bought in 2000 , Price Paid: 1350
Location : Bend, Orego , USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Redman Spa and Stove

Likes: Good looks, reputable manufacturer with long experience

Dislikes: Previously has a Model 3. When logs were p;roperly placed gas flame would wrap around logs and heat them to a beautiful red glow....looked great and put out lots of heat. I bought Jotul for my new house based on the previous stove. The new stove has fixed logs and cannot be placed so that the flame hits the rear logs. Not pretty and does not produce the infra red heat. Wish the new stove had individually movable logs so that this defficiency could be overcome.

Comments: Are other log sets available -- ie, multiple logs instead of single log set???
