Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 920 | House Size (Sq feet): 1050
Bought in 2000 , Price Paid: 700 (used)
Location : Bothell, WA 98011,
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Monroe Fireplace and Stove

Likes: Nice looking, mostly well-made, easy start.

Dislikes: A poor breather, have to cheat until 400 degrees with open ash-pan. (A site-specific limitation is two 45 degree exhaust bends to reach existing chimney.) Fairly smokey with adding fuel. And most irritating is the small firebox, which is hard to stoke full enough to hold overnight.

Comments: This is a nice stove, but should have a straight exhaust path. It is not large enough to heat my little tiny noninsulated house.
