Hi everyone, I have been lurking and searching these forums for about a month now. Hubby and I will be moving into an old farmhouse in the next month. An addition was put onto the house in the early 1970s. The addition is a living room with a fireplace and master bedroom above. Hubby grew up with a wood stove his parents still use. It's a basic black steel box with no name visible on it from 1980ish. We would like to heat the farmhouse exclusively with wood and use the existing chimney. Im going to try to upload two pictures I took when looking at the house. From my understanding, a freestanding wood stove is our best option for heating the entire house, cooktop, etc. however, I'm concerned how much we will have to build out the already raised hearth to sit the stove. From my understanding, we will also need a rear flue. The only stove we have found local so far that might work is the Jotel Oslo 500. I was hoping for something cheaper but I don't want to regret a cheap purchase. So, I'm going to the house Sat. What measurements do I need in helping make a decision? What things can you suggest based on the pictures of the opening and the outside chimney? Anything to help my research would be appreciated. this is a big investment for us but one i know will be worth it.Thank you so much!
