Erik and I for awhile now have played with the idea of putting a wood stove in our house. So far these are my ideas. Sorry the pictures aren't very clear, pencil does not scan well. Picture number 1 (they are labeled but in backwards) doesn't really work because of clearances and roof trusses. Number 2 is okay. Number 3 is my favorite and Erik likes number4. Number 4 would also be the easiest. Number 3 we lose less room but it is a lot of work. There's also the difference between a free-standing wood stove and an insert. You can't cook on an insert during power outages but we also have a propane cook-stove that I can and do cook on when the power goes out. With number 2 and number 4 we would shorten our front closet, put the door in the hallway and put the piano by the front door. Number 1 and number 3 we would shorten the closet and put the door in the hallway still but the piano would stay where it is. Which one do you like best?
