Wood Burning Stove in New Construction
We just designed a new 1684 sq ft vacation home in New Braunfels, Tx with a conventional fireplace. The contract with the builder is signed, the loan is approved, and the appraisal is done.
We're now considering a wood burning stove instead of the fireplace, but we want to keep the aesthetics of our stone fireplace inside and full stone chimney outside. I also would prefer a stove instead of an insert.
Can anyone recommend a stove that works well as a "hearthmount" and can be vented through a fireplace chimney (through a stove-sized pipe)?
Anyone have pictures that shows this type of set up?
I'm looking for something that I can present to my builder that will necessitate the fewest design changes.
