    Found a Fisher fireplace, can anyone tell me some details

    Your picture looks a lot like the one I just installed. If you want it for heat, it's plenty warm. I paid $350 and had to move it, plus paid a company to install. Probably too much but I know it was done right. It's 90 inside and 20 outside with less logs than I use in my basement fireplace...

    I have been stalking the forum for all the good advice found here. when I bought my house, my cousin had a stove exactly like yours he donated to me. He had paid $500 for it...maybe too much? but maybe not. I love this stove. i paid good money to have a chimney (double walled) retrofitted into...
