I'm preparing to build a new house and have a slight delema. I like the look of a fireplace with a hearth to sit on, but I hear woodburning stoves are more effecient in heating a large room. I don't plan on using the fireplace/stove to heat the entire house as I will have central heat/air. Please give me your thoughts on which will provide more heat and how (if) I can get the hearth that I want. Thanks in advanced.
