We are building a 3500 sf ranch home outside of Philadelphia on 50 acres. We have 10 acres of woods that should give us enough wood to burn. In the center of the house in a great room we are planning a fireplace because one person really wants a fireplace more for the enjoyment of an open fire. We were also thinking of a wood burning stove for efficiency and heat in the same room. As I research it seems what is best may be only a good wood stove with a glass door that may give same experience of a fireplace and be less costly and more efficient. Any thoughts from the experts out there?
