Installing a Woodstove in Front of Windows?

LoveInTheHouseNovember 16, 2011

My new houses has window everywhere, which is nice. The only spots that would be suitable for a woodstove is in front of the windows. Can you put a woodstove in front of windows? Would it look funny? Would it defeat the whole purpose of saving money on heat by burning wood?

Here is a novelty, how about an interior wall. Where I am from there are a great deal of first period houses (old,old)as well as older houses and old houses.Some where along the line some one decided that fireplaces and chimneys should be on an outside wall. Now lets think logically why would you want a heat source in the middle of the house.
