    Default Wood Stoves

    Gathering info on wood stoves. Quadra Fire, Jotul, Lopi or Osburn. The cabin is a 24 x 24 and the stove will be the source of heat. Weekend use cabin for summer and winter. Cabin is here outside of Talkeetna. Tell me what you have and like or do not like about it. Thanks for the feedback.

    I still really like Blaze Kings. Great design. Thermostatically controlled, I like that I can open the door and not smoke out the house. Long burning times.
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    Sorry they are both wood burning stoves equall in price. The Lopi Republic 1750 need to get a price was qouted $1000 for a smaller one. The Quadra-Fire 3100 Millenium is $1850. Both place here in town had great customer service

    We had a boiler outage a couple years ago and kept our 2100 sf house warm at -20* with just our blaze king. There were some cold spots as the house design isn't exactly well suited to heating with a single wood stove but it worked surprisingly well!

    Still thinking you cannot beat a Blaze King.
    We have the princess at the cabin and the King at the house.
    Both fantastic stoves with long burn time.

    It's really hard to beat a Blaze King. I have the princess at my house, my only complaint is it's too hot. Really it's just too big of a stove for the house size.
    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Another vote for a Blaze King over any of the given choices.
