Contemplating about a wood stove...

Been debating for a long time about whether to install a wood stove in our house...
A main issue is of course, the chore to obtain firewood...
Where from?
A neighbor of mine who has a wood stove gets his firewood from trees chopped down by people in the neighborhood, and also from the hills owned by a friend of his...
The wood needs to be split and put up to dry for at least a year and half before it can be used...
Which means, there must be a shed to store the wood while letting it go dry...
It will certainly be a chore...
We are using a keresene stove and a fan-heater now...
Another issue touches on where we should place the stove...
It can weigh up to 200 kilograms...
We finally went to a showroom to seek for some advice...
Hmmm, sounds good...
I found myself really attracted to what the man had to say...
It will cost quite a bomb, and the chimmney installation is very expensive as well... Still, to have a real fire in the room... wooh, cozy, I imagine...
And, I love baked food... fish, chicken, bread, pizza, cookies, muffins, sweet potatoes... plus, soup of course...
All these can be cooked with the wood stove...
