We are in virtually in the same position.
From what I have found out so far, you need to
make sure that your insert is designed for
zero clearance so that it does not generate
too much heat for the enclosure. You may have
information on the UL rating for your chimney as
well (mine is UL127). The insert should be tested
to that spec as well so that it does not generate
too much heat. I have found three brands so far
that may fit Avalon, Regency, and Sierra. You might
also consider a Hearth stove. It sits out on your
hearth and if you have enough space in your room, you
just have to extend your hearth another foot and a
half or so in front of your door (local regs).
