Ladies and Gents, Take it easy on me, I'm a newbie I have a 3,000 square ft ground floor with a spot close to the middle of it plumbed for a wood stove. The rough framing for the hearth is in place. I need a stove. I've been eye-balling the QuadraFire 5700. My ceilings are at 10 ft. The exterior walls are stucco on 2x6 framing with sprayed-in foam insulation. I'm in southern Arizona, so the temps don't get crazy low, but it does get cold. I'm surrounded by 10 acres of mesquite. I can't think of anything I enjoy more than cutting wood (well, maybe one thing. . .). I walk around in my mesquites and stumble across piles of wood that I cut, stacked, and forgot about!! So I have plenty of firewood. Anyway, to the question, what are your thoughts on the 5700 for that size of a house (there's also a finished attic that some of the heat will escape to)? What would be some good alternatives? Thanks! Also. . .my attic trusses are on 1 ft centers, so the clear distance between them is about 10.5 inches. Does that mean I'm hosed as far as a stove with an 8" outlet? Because isn't chimney pipe double wall? So an 8" chimney pipe will actually be about 12" in outside diameter, which means I'm toast. . .
