Hello I'm at a crossroad. I definitely want a long burn time and love the openness of a traditional fireplace. Dont like inserts that protrude outward. Like the more modern looking flat options. The room the insert or the stove would go into has cathedral ceilings. The insert would go on the first floor. It opens to the kitchen as well. The stove would go on a second level loft that looks down to the area where the fireplace is located. It abutts the master bedroom. The stove would require piping that's visible from the front of the house, coming out the roof. Not ideal but........... Here are my list of likes Inserts: Destination 2.3 Recency CI2600 or Altera PE Alderlea T5 Stoves: BK Hearthstone(Phoenix,shelburne,Manchester) Woodstove Wood stoves we love the enamel painted or matte black look. Great wood supply moisture content less than 20%. Room area is maybe 8-900 sqft. Open to any suggestions.
