Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): | House Size (Sq feet): 950
Bought in 2001 , Price Paid: 899.00
Location : Park Forest, IL 60466, usa
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Hearth and Home Shoppe Inc.

Likes: Purchased this year (2003). Super little stove! Great finish, good draw, easy to start, no smoke, good burn time. $899.00 for the stove, plus the chimney (Excel).

Dislikes: None with stove. Directions for chimney connector very confusing.

Comments: Bought from a store that was just re-establishing with Jotul. The order took 5 WEEKS, instead of the 7 - 10 days she told me! Dealer is served via distributor, and not a direct factory relationship.
