Woodburning stoves / cookers in House Renovations Posted January 17, 2010 We had a very old Deville when we bought the house, it was very good but we changed it for a Godin cuisinere as we thought it was well past it's sell by date. Re the Godin, excellent for warmth although I've never really got to grips with the oven. Reason being, when we first bought the house we had no insulation whatsoever and the front door didn't fit properly so the weather came in making the house very cold. However since we've been insulated, plasterboarded and had a new front door fitted we find the cuisinere is far too warm and not particularly controllable and are considering changing it in the next couple of years (when we've saved up enough!). Also consider the possibility of both of you being ill at the same time which is what happened to us at the end of last year ie I had a back problem and couldn't get the logs in (or do anything for that matter) and the OH went down for a fortnight with a virus - it was only then that it occurred to us will we want to be bothered/healthy enough to be chopping logs for the cuisinere. So, before we get too much older we are thinking about an Everhot - expensive but a neighbour of mine has an electric Aga and swears by it as it is completely controllable - now we are not in the market for an Aga but if anyone has any info about the Everhot I would be most grateful.
