Hello. I have been waiting to pull the trigger on a used Vermont castings stove for a while now. I've found a brand new, still on the pallet, Defiant encore model 2550. Comes with both warming racks as well. Guy bought it 10 years ago and never installed it. I would like an efficient stove for my UP Michigan cabin that is yet to be built. Will be roughly 32 x 32 with a cathedral ceiling with a loft. Guy wants $1900 , but I can buy it for $1100 because it's been sitting there. Price sounds great. Question. Is this the right stove for a cabin that's 1000 SQ feet? Is it too finicky to get the catalyst to reburn? Any thoughts? VC stoves are beautiful and I will be building a beautiful cabin, so I'm hoping this is the stove for me. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
