Where to buy wood stove-Vt.Castings

I'm giving up on getting my wood stove from Lehman's. I ordered the extra large federalist type. Used to be made by consolidated dutch- west, which was bought out by vermont castings; who then stopped direct selling by mail. I need this type because I already have a blower for it..we now use the large version, which has pretty much worn out (thought of moving it to the bedroom where it would get less use). Any tips on where to order (not Lehman's) would be greatly appreciated

Go to a local hardware store (locally owned I mean, not a giant chain) and ask them to order you one. Most are happy to do it for a fee. You'll get it in a week or two from my experience.

I am wondering, speaking of wood stoves, do you have to have a particular place in your home to put it? I am assuming it needs proper ventilation (duh). Does it go in the place of your regular (in our case, electric) stove? Forgive me, I know NOTHING about wood stoves. We have a wood burning fireplace that will be our main source of heat, and he have purchased a 2 burner Coleman camp stove and lots and lots of Coleman fuel for it. I have looked into a "wood stove insert" for our fireplace (whatever that is) but the cost (around $1000-2000) really put it out of range for us. What are some options? I mean, if it really gets bad for us (personally) we can just eat food out of cans cold, but what are some better cooking options for us? I would like to bake bread in my dutch oven on the camp stove but how long does each gallon of Coleman fuel last? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Quietly Preparing
