Fireplace insert?

PostBy: strat0 On: Sat Jan 04, 2014 7:21 pm

I am looking for a hopper fed, fireplace insert w/glass... going to remodel the livingroom, and thought this would be wonderful to have. I have been waiting for DSM to come out with something... but as far as I can see, nothing yet.. anyone have any suggestions?

Do you have room to convert to a stove?

I do have all the room to do as I wish. My livingroom is huge. I was just wanting a decent looking, hopper fed insert... I could just let idle all winter... shake and fill, 1x/day. look over at it thru some nice glass doors....

You could put in a hearth and a stove that would vent into the fireplace, if that's something you wanted, others have..

Alaska has a rice coal burning stoker insert. I think is rated up to 90 or 105,000 btus I forget. I looked at them before I bought my hand fired insert

I would like some as I said... nice looking, tend once a day... rice or nut would be fine.. doesn't have to put out a lot of heat, as it would be my second coal burning apparatus!
