Hi all! I am looking for a wood stove for my new house. I am thinking of getting a vintage BK and restoring it but I was wondering how the heat would do? I need it to heat my 1800sqft home.

If not, what are other recommended brands I may be able to find used? (I don’t really have $4000 to spend on a wood stove if I can help it)
