Hello all, I've been scanning posts for a couple of weeks now, and I'm not any more sure about a stove direction than when I started - so many opinions and options! I have an 1130 sf home in Sisters, Oregon, built in 1990, 2x6 construction, that I'm using part-time for now, but could become full time one day so I want to do the stove as right as I can. Historically winter lows are 15 - 20 f. Living, dining and kitchen areas are open to each other and stove placement is right in the middle, with 2 bedrooms down a short hall. The current budget steel stove heats the space okay, but heat doesn't make it into the bedrooms very well despite a stove top fan, and an overhead fan in the low pitch vaulted LR section. The stove burns through a full load (lodge pole pine or juniper) even when turned down in 5 - 6 hours. Supplement heat is individually controlled electric in-wall cadet heaters that I prefer to not use. I'm concerned about getting a too small or too large of stove. I'd sure appreciate some feedback, here are some stoves that seem like they might fit the bill: 1) JØTUL F 3 CB 2) JØTUL F 400 CASTINE CF - I like the bit more contemporary look of a clear view glass 2) Woodstock Absolute Steel Hybrid - my favorite, but the side load feature would require the expense of re-configuring the hearth pad, disturbing current and discontinued flooring, and the stove pipe would no longer go straight, or mostly straight, upward. 3) VC Intrepid Flexburn - I like the idea of the ease of the top load feature; I'm not getting any younger 4) Hearthstone Craftsbury 5) Hearthstone Shelburne 6) Hearthstone Green Mountain 40 - but I've already read some negative things about the cats in this one 7) MORSØ 7110 - but I'm unclear how to interpret their specifications to know which stove would be the best fit. Please, fire away with your personal experience and knowledge. Thank you!!
