I am in the market for a wood stove for the first time and I was looking for recommendations for stove brands and models. I am looking for an indoor stove, that doesn't tie into central heating duct, has a glass front loading door and is capable of heating at least 2000sq ft. As far as the other stove qualifications I am open to recommendations, (e.g. cast vs/steel, size of logs accepted, perceived ease of use, ash tray location, etc.). I am replacing what I am going to call a freestanding (cast iron) fireplace that was abused to provide partial heat to said house while running wide open all the time during a southern Iowa winter.
Thanks for any advice
