Altho I'm learning my Surdiac as we speak (write?), someday I'ld like to up-grade to a "nicer" stove. My house is a turn of the century farmhouse, and my wife will tell you I've gotten a little too "anal" about keeping our house "period" correct. Not that it qualifies for better homes and garden mags, but if you have to do something, why not do it in a manner that will be beneficial "and' esthetically pleasing.(Which is a relevant term).
I've checked out google images and some of this sites gallery, but am still looking for ideas. I like the looks of some of the old Glenwoods, and saw a neat looking Buckwalters, and I'm sure there are dozens out there that would fit my desires and needs. My surround is built for a rectangular stove, with a rear exit pipe, but i could easily be talked in to a 360 degree stove, if the price and trimmings were right. what I'ld really prefer is an antique stove that will heat my 1500sq/ft home, burn for over a day or 2, look absolutely gorgeous, and cost about $100 bucks. (
Yeah...like that's gunna happen)
Being realistic tho, anyone know of a stove with an antique flair, (doesn't need to be), possibly rectangular with rear exit, that I could investigate? thanx
