Anyone here have a Lopi Leyden or a Joytul Castine WB stove??

Please forgive the cross post (also posting in Building a Home forum),

Does anyone here have experience with either of the above two stoves? We are narrowing our choice and so far: it's down to one of these.

How long did you have the stove?

Any problems?

What features did you like most?

Dislike most?

I do have the Castine purchased in late Jan 2005. It has provided me with 100% of my heating needs ever since it has been installed. No problems so far other than the lower corners of the glass tends to get dirty in operation. The features I wish the Castine had is a larger ashpan and a side door but the Leydon doesn't have one either. A side door tends to prevent ash spills open opening the door which in turn tends to increase dust accumulation in the home.

The Leydon heats a larger area 2000 sq ft which is closer to a Jotul Oslo which does have a side door feature but then again its hard to beat the unique look of a Castine as well its single door operation.

If I had to get another stove I would maybe consider a Woodstock Keystone in matte black (I can't go bigger than a Castine in size) but its hard to beat the viewing of a fire from a noncatalytic stove.
