Complete rookie here, considering to make useful the fireplace in my living room with a 14' vaulted ceiling and 7' x 12' window. My wife's uncle has a Russo Wood/Coal that he is willing to give us for free. My question is simple, should I accept this gift or is it going to be more trouble than it's worth? Stove seems to be in fine shape, but seems small though, and I would like it to heat more than that living room (I live in a 1800sf split and this would be on the main level). I've also checked out the local fireplace shop and like the Lopi - but most of you know what that will entail, $$$$. THANKS! fyi - If it's helpful for your advice, I can get wood for free....including seasoned stuff for this year.
