I am considering a corn stove and would very much welcome recommendations. Here is some relevant information.
I used to live in Massachusetts (read: extremely wooded area) in a home with electric heat and two wood stoves. I managed the stoves for ~15 years and just loved it. One stove was a hearthstone, the other a Lopi. The Lopi burnt like a blast furnace and I preferred it.
I especially loved the whole romantic feel of a sizable fire in the wood stoves during an especially harsh winter day. Feeling the convection heat, seeing the burn, enjoying the look of the stove overall…that sort of thing.
Now I live in rural South Dakota. I do not consider the area conducive to a wood stove as there are just not a whole lot of trees. All this being said…
I love a stove for its esthetics. The stove I want would be in my living room and be enjoyed as a piece of furniture. Ceramic glass a must.
I don’t have much of a footprint. I would have to go with a small stove.
As much as I like esthetics, while needing to have some, more important is a stove where I don’t have to wrestle so much with getting a fire going or keeping one going.
While I will certainly love the heat, the stove need not be heating a huge part of the house. Just the living room and adjacent rooms (dining room and kitchen) or even just portions of those rooms would be sufficient – though should the stove be able to heat more, that would certainly be fine!
I think that is about it.
Thanks in advance for any input…
