I decided to get a QuadraFire 5700 Step Top and it is burning nicely.

Hi Clancey,

The entire wood stove "hearth" including the wood nook was purpose built in the late eighties and was part of the original architects design to heat the home. The hearth is about 14 feet wide, 4 feet thick, roughly 18 feet high inside the home, and the large wood nook holds about 6 to 7 large wheelbarrows full of wood stacked two rows deep. Roughly two hundred or more medium to large splits.

Proof that someone is enjoying wood heat!
