Re: wood stoves
I forgot to mention - they aren't cheap. What you spend is related to how big it is, whether or not it is ceramic or just cast, etc. I would expect to pay north of $2000. I couldn't bring myself to pay that much. I bought a used one and completely tore it down, replaced all of the internals, and re-built it. I think I paid around $300 for the stove in pretty tough shape, spent another $400-$500 rebuilding it. Came out great.
