Steve,I agree that would be a good bit coal stove,if those raised place are secondary combustion.That was also my thought on putting refractory in the fire pot.
I wonder if the #12 or the #14 would be big enough to heat 1400 square foot house?
Yeah I would say that they would heat that space quite nicely. If those are the fire pot sizes that is. My Glenwood Modern Oak 116 (16" pot) heats my 2500sq well until it gets down to the teens where I add the cookstove in. It's more about the layout of house than ability of the stove too. Measure the pot size and take off an inch if you line it.
The control for secondary cumbustion would be the loading door vents which the stove seems to have plenty of. The other is automatic I believe when the stove heats it adds that hot air through those small vents.
