Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 1400 | House Size (Sq feet): 2500
Bought in 2000 , Price Paid: 300
Location : North Conway, NH 3860, USA
Purchased from: Other Store Type (Furniture/etc) - Bought used over Interne
Heats quickly, side loading, holds heat well
Firebox WAY too small. Catalytic converter has to be run over 1200 -1400 degrees to stay clean and not cause stove to smoke. The door is too small.
This is an older model, probably originally bought in 1988, but still is cranking out the heat and is fairly attractive to look at.
