I assume the Raised Ranch does not have living area in the basement because you quote 1000sq.ft. and the stove would go in the living room fireplace?
This is a perfect location for the Blower option Chubby with one doorway fan installed to the light switch box in the hallway at the top of the stairs blowing down towards the bedroomshttp://www.homedepot.com/p/Suncourt-5-1 ... dvwgaLD-Uk
Pay an electrician for an hour to have it installed to a switch and build in. The open Liv., Kitch., Din room are fine as is.
I would pick up a reconditioned blower chubby with external shaker ability (since its in your living room) or if you dont want the stove to stick out into the living area that much try to find a Crane 404 which has external shaker ability as well
(almost any current fasco blower can be installed onto it because all 404's have a blower shroud already). Either of these coal stoves will heat your entire house at a long burn idle and can be found for very little money.
