Hi ive no knowledge of woodburners  but after getting a number of quotes to have two fitted Im now  even more confused, so advice please from anyone who has had one fitted. originally I was going to get two one in the kitchen and one in the large longe, Ive been told i need  8kw output  some say one in the Lounge is enough and that will heat all of downstairs (it's not open plan) and then there is the cost of the stove they seem to range from 500€ to about 4,000€ I don't have a clue what to expect from my money,  I have two chimneys so am guessing there was two fitted originally but am guessing the downstairs started off as open plan, any advice appreciated

we wish to paint an interior stone wall in our old house which has no damp course. We have been told to only use whitewash which allows the wall to breathe. However we would appreciate any comments re other products/brands that other people have used. Thanks heaps!
