Hello All, I am a first time stove owner who recently had my Morso 7110 installed in our raised ranch. I had been thinking about installing a woodstove since we first looked at the house. With the price of our propane heat for this upcoming winter it was a no brainer... The building inspector comes tomorrow to verify the installation done by our dealer (a quality company if I do say so myself). Once the stove is inspected, I am looking forward to burning a small fire of kindling to work on curing the paint on the stove. Our installation is shown in the attached picture. Our our is a raised ranch. Approximately 1350 sq ft for the main living area upstairs. The stove is located in the living room / dining room. The kitchen also makes up the room as it is an open floor plan. Only an island separating the three space. Combined they are probably 500 sq ft ( a guess). The ceiling in this area is a catherdrial ceiling with a ceiling fan at the top. The stove is facing directly down the hallway towards the bedrooms. Above the hallway for the bedroom is the intake for a central ac / forced hot air system. As proof of my desire / insanity to get a stove. I cut down several trees last year and had split 3-4 pallets worth of wood stacked 5 ft high with a wood grenade and sledge hammer I have continued splitting more over the spring and summer and now am up 6+ pallets full. I love the workout. It is a great feeling when you drop the sledgehammer and the wood blasts apart on the first hit. We live on 1.5 acres with a number of dead trees still standing. I figure to leave them standing until needed so they don't rot. Our builder/neighbor owns the forest behind us and has given the ok to take down wood anytime I want. As I am a newbie to the woodburners guild I have a number of questions... -Does anyone have any experience with the Morso 7110? I was between that and a Jotul F400 Castine. I chose the Morso on price and the Morso listed an 8 hr burn time whereas the Jotul was listed as up to 8 hrs. -Any comments on our layout/design? -If I run the forced air system on fan only, will that help to spread the heat to the bedrooms? -When loading the stove for the overnight, how full do you make it? Should the wood be piled all the way to the secondary air ducts? Thanks for any answers. This site has been a great resource so far.
